Parler Sues Amazon, Asks Court to Reinstate Platform

Social media company Parler sued Amazon on Monday, alleging that the Seattle-based firm’s hosting service violated anti-trust laws and their contractual agreement.

The company, which was taken offline by Amazon’s services early Monday morning, asked a federal judge in Washington state to reject Amazon’s shutdown of its services.

Parler argued that Amazon’s move was “motivated by political animus” and designed to reduce competition to benefit Twitter. Twitter is a customer of Amazon Web Services’ division.

The emergency order asked a judge to reject Amazon’s shutdown of Parler’s account and said it is akin to “pulling the plug on a hospital patient on life support.”
