Parler, a free speech social network, has filed a lawsuit against Amazon Web Services (AWS) for the alleged breach of contract and antitrust violation.
According to the Washington Post, the lawsuit which was filed at the Western Washington district court on Monday seeks to fight for a temporary restraining order to prevent Amazon from removing Parler from its servers.
The lawsuit stated that Amazon breached its contract with Parler by not providing them 30 days notice of termination, adding that they will have no way to stay online without the web services.
“Without AWS, Parler is finished as it has no way to get online. And a delay of granting this TRO by even one day could also sound Parler’s death knell as President Trump and others move on to other platforms,” the complaint read.
President Donald Trump had migrated to the microblogging platform after Facebook and Twitter banned his accounts over his comments on the violence that rocked US congress last Wednesday.
Google had also removed Parler from its store for failing to delete posts inciting violence. In the same vein, Apple had suspended Parler from its store for failing to moderate incitements to violence and illegal activity.
Amazon’s move is the latest in a series of actions affecting social media following the rioting on Capitol Hill last week.
