Parler, a social media app popular among right-wing groups, filed a new lawsuit accusing Amazon of trying to destroy its business following the January 6 storming of the US Capitol.
Parler went dark when Amazon suspended its Web-hosting services following the Capitol attack, saying Parler had failed to effectively moderate violent content on its website. Parler's new lawsuit accused Amazon of a slew of contractual violations, and like the original case said Amazon shut it down to benefit a new client, Twitter.
