Judge Allows Lawsuit To Proceed Against Biden Administration for "Coercive Censorship," Pressuring Social Media Companies to Censor Stories About Covid-19 and Hunter Biden's Laptop

Other lawsuits have been tossed out. The judge says that this lawsuit, by the states and doctors censored by Biden, is better pleaded.

The Biden administration failed to stop a lawsuit by Louisiana, Missouri and doctors alleging federal coercion of social media companies to censor purported misinformation on COVID-19, elections and the Hunter Biden laptop, with a federal judge greenlighting the suit to move forward.

U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty ruled that unlike previous failed censorship lawsuits against social media companies by their users, the First Amendment and Administrative Procedure Act suit by the states and doctors is much better pleaded.

"Plaintiffs have alleged the full picture: a cohesive and coercive campaign by the Biden Administration and all of the Agency Defendants," from the CDC and FDA to the FBI and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, "to threaten and persuade social media companies to more avidly censor so-called 'misinformation,'" Doughty wrote.

He also cited "alleged various statements from many individuals that contained concrete threats both toward the general viewpoints espoused by plaintiffs, as well as the specific content of the private plaintiffs themselves."

Doughty cited the alleged censorship of the anti-lockdown Great Barrington Declaration and its coauthors, epidemiologists Jay Bhattacharya and Martin Kulldorff, "just after" then-National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins called for a "quick and devastating ... takedown" of the document.

Do you think David French will offer his services to Biden to fight this lawsuit?

Because I do.
