Conservative social network Parler sues Amazon over web shutdown
The social platform Parler sued Amazon Monday after the tech giant’s web division forced the conservative-friendly network offline for failing to rein in incitements to violence.
Nevada-based Parler asked a federal court for a restraining order to block Amazon Web Services from cutting off access to internet servers.
The suit comes amid a wave of action by online giants cutting off access to supporters of President Donald Trump in the wake of last week’s US Capitol riots and purported plans for new violent demonstrations.
