Parler Drops Antitrust Lawsuit Against Amazon Two Weeks After Relaunching

Parler has dropped the antitrust lawsuit it brought against Amazon after the tech titan booted the right-wing social network from its servers.

In a three-page court filing, Parler said it was voluntarily dismissing its scathing January complaint accusing Amazon’s cloud computing unit of forcing its website offline out of “political animus.”

Parler walked away from the case “without prejudice,” meaning it reserves the right to re-file the lawsuit in the future, according to the Tuesday filing.

The startup did not explain why it decided to scrap the suit. But the filing came about two weeks after Parler relaunched its free-speech-focused platform, which has become popular with supporters of ex-President Donald Trump and other right-wing activists.
