The decision is a victory for Twitter, which asked Judge James Donato, of the US District Court for the Northern District of California, to dismiss the lawsuit.
“The amended complaint does not reasonably allege the First Amendment’s claim against Twitter,” the decision said. “The plaintiffs’ first claim was denied.” Donato also got rid of Trump’s other allegations, such as that section 230 – the law that protects tech platforms from lawsuits related to most user-generated content – unconstitutional.
Twitter declined to comment on the dismissal of the lawsuit.
Trump can continue to pursue the case, with Donato ruling that he can file an amended complaint, though the ruling also states that Trump will not be allowed to add any new legal claims.
