TikTok lawsuit against the United States seems weak on first glance. This argument that they can’t move the source code to a new owner is hard to take seriously:

…precipitously moving all TikTok source code development from ByteDance to a new TikTok owner would be impossible as a technological matter. The platform consists of millions of lines of software code that have been painstakingly developed by thousands of engineers over multiple years.

Sure, it would be some work to sift out what is TikTok and what is ByteDance. Better start the refactor now. From the text of the court filing.
