A federal judge on Thursday ruled that Amazon did not need to immediately restore its services to the social media platform Parler.
Amazon Web Services took Parler offline earlier this month, as Amazon fretted the consequences of harmful speech on Parler amid the riot at the Capitol. Parler subsequently filed an antitrust lawsuit in a Seattle-based federal court against Amazon that also alleged the company breached its contract. . . .
While the judge’s order dealt Parler’s legal case a blow, the company is facing other headwinds elsewhere. Parler’s app remains unavailable from Apple and Google’s app stores, and additional scrutiny from lawmakers looks to be headed its way. . . .
