Federal Judge Denies Parler's Bid to Force Amazon to Resume Service
By Sarah E. Needleman
Parler has lost an early bid to force Amazon.com Inc. to resume
providing web-hosting services for the social network.
A federal judge in Seattle ruled Thursday that Parler's claims
didn't meet the threshold for securing a preliminary injunction,
though the court wasn't yet dismissing the company's claims against
Parler sued Amazon on Jan. 11, claiming the tech giant kicked
the social network off its servers for political and
anticompetitive reasons. Amazon denied those claims, saying it
terminated the relationship because it found several instances of
violent content on Parler in violation of its terms of service.
