Judge rules Twitter can’t avoid Alex Berenson censorship lawsuit, faces discovery

Independent journalist Alex Berenson sued Twitter after the platform banned him over what it said was Covid “misinformation.” On Friday, a judge ruled against Twitter’s motion to dismiss the case, meaning the lawsuit can proceed.

Berenson was banned for claiming that Covid vaccines are an advanced therapeutic carrying risky side effects.

The lawsuit against Twitter will proceed following Friday’s ruling; however, Berenson’s claim that the platform violated his First Amendment free speech rights was dismissed as, “the free speech clause only prohibits government abridgement of speech – plaintiff concedes Twitter is a private company.”
