President Trump’s new lawsuit could break new First Amendment ground according to reports.
According to Fox News:
Parler interim CEO Mark Meckler argued on “Fox & Friends First” on Thursday that former President Donald Trump’s lawsuit against Big Tech companies “could break new ground.”
Meckler made the comment the day after Trump announced that he will lead a lawsuit over alleged censorship against Twitter, Facebook and Google, which are the three tech companies that removed him from their platforms after the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by a mob of his supporters.
The lawsuit will be a class-action filing, with Trump as the lead plaintiff, claiming that he’s been censored by the companies.
“There is no better evidence that Big Tech is out of control than the fact that they banned the sitting president of the United States earlier this year,” Trump said speaking from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Trump is currently banned on Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.
