    Judge Delivers Smackdown To Biden Admin In Big Tech Case

    Published on

    A federal judge is interested in the nature of the government’s interactions with major technology corporations and has ordered the government to disclose its communications.

    Judge Terry Doughty of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana recently denied the Biden administration’s motion to dismiss a landmark case alleging a conspiracy between the federal government and Big Tech to censor certain COVID-19-related users.

    In Missouri v. Biden, the states of Louisiana and Missouri filed a lawsuit alleging that social media companies censored certain viewpoints and users on their platforms at the direction of members of President Joe Biden’s administration and leaders of federal government agencies.

    The lawsuit claims that social media companies improperly labeled information as “misinformation” and “disinformation” in violation of the First Amendment, and that the federal government exceeded its authority and the Departments of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security violated the Administrative Procedure Act.

    “The Court finds that the Complaint alleges significant encouragement and coercion that converts the otherwise private conduct of censorship on social media platforms into state action, and is unpersuaded by Defendants’ arguments to the contrary,” Doughty wrote in his ruling. “Further, while the Government may certainly select the messages it wishes to convey, this freedom is limited by the more fundamental principle that a government entity may not employ threats to limit the free speech of private citizens.”

    The situation heated up when Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey tweeted that Americans should be horrified of the reasoning Biden’s attorneys presented to the judge in support of some censorship.

    A professor at the Stanford School of Medicine, Jay Bhattacharya, issued a similar warning about the administration’s court arguments.
