Federal judge denies Parler's attempt at injunction forcing it back on AWS

Federal judge denies Parler's attempt at injunction forcing it back on AWS

Parler's long-shot bid for a preliminary injunction that would have forced AWS to restore service to its app was denied Thursday by a federal court judge in Seattle.


"The Court explicitly rejects any suggestion that the balance of equities or the public interest favors obligating AWS to host the kind of abusive, violent content at issue in this case, particularly in light of the recent riots at the U.S. Capitol," wrote Judge Barbara Jacobs Rothstein in a motion. Parler's antitrust lawsuit against AWS remains alive, but it will have to go through the regular court process to have any hopes of getting back on to AWS' cloud servers, and Rothstein's opinion made it clear that will be an uphill battle.
