Parler on Monday filed a lawsuit against Amazon for anti-trust violations, breach of contract and unlawful business interferences and asked a federal judge to immediately reinstate their platform.
“AWS’s decision to effectively terminate Parler’s account is apparently motivated by political animus,” the lawsuit reads. “It is also apparently designed to reduce competition in the microblogging services market to the benefit of Twitter.”

The Hill reported:
Social media company Parler sued Amazon on Monday, alleging that its suspension from Amazon’s hosting service violated antitrust law and breached the companies’ contractual arrangement.
In its lawsuit, Parler, which is especially popular among conservatives, asked a federal judge to order that the platform be reinstated online.
The 18-page complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle, where Amazon is headquartered, accuses Amazon Web Services (AWS) of applying a politically motivated double standard to Parler in contrast to its treatment of the more mainstream social media giant Twitter.
Because of Big Tech censorship, Parler became the fastest growing social media company.
On Friday Google and Apple worked in unison to remove Parler from app stores.
Parler is currently offline after Amazon deplatformed them from the web server.
Congressman Devin Nunes said the CEOs of the Big Tech companies that worked together to deplatform Parler should be brought up on RICO charges.
