Parler Sues Amazon Over Alleged Antitrust Violations

Business Insider reports:

Parler, the far-right social media service, is suing Amazon over antitrust violations, according to a court filing submitted on Monday. The move comes after Amazon knocked Parler off its cloud-hosting service after it said Parler failed to moderate threats of violence following last week’s deadly siege on the US Capitol.

Parler alleges that Amazon’s decision was politically motivated and breaches a contract between the two companies that entails Amazon’s cloud-hosting service supporting posts published on Parler. According to the lawsuit, AWS is required to provide Parler with a 30-day notice before terminating service.
