Judge launches Trump lawsuit on Twitter

A federal judge on Friday dismissed Donald Trump’s lawsuit against social media giant Twitter. The former president has filed a lawsuit after Twitter permanently suspended him over his remarks immediately following the January 6, 2021 uprising.

Twitter was concerned about the potential for Trump to incite further violence.

Trump, along with the far-right American Conservative Union, led by Matt Schlapp, and five people who had also been banned sued Twitter.

CNBC reports that the lawsuit asked California Federal District Court Judge James Donato to declare the federal Communications Decency Act unconstitutional. The judge gave way for Trump to refile his lawsuit.

Just two weeks ago, Trump announced that he had no desire to return to Twitter and that he would communicate with his followers through his fledgling but much-mocked Truth Social platform.
