Parler Loses Bid to Have Service Restored by Amazon

The group lost service after the armed insurgence on the Capitol

A federal judge on Thursday rejected Parler’s demand that Inc restore web hosting services for the social media platform, which Amazon had cut off following the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Rothstein in Seattle said Parler failed to show it was likely to prevail on the merits of its claims, or that the public interest supported a preliminary injunction requiring the restoration of service.

Amazon Web Services suspended Parler on Jan. 10, saying Parler violated its contract by ignoring repeated warnings to effectively address steady growth in violent content, including calls to assassinate prominent Democratic politicians, leading business executives and the media.
