Trump v. YouTube

Trump asks judge to force YouTube to reinstate his channel (reclaimthenet.org)

In the ongoing lawsuit against Big Tech platforms, President Trump has filed for a preliminary injunction that would require YouTube to reinstate his account by Monday. The former president filed a lawsuit against the platforms that de-platformed him on the grounds that they did that on behalf of the federal government.

The request states:

“Pursuant to Rule 65 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Plaintiff Donald J. Trump respectfully moves for a preliminary injunction directing, inter alia, Defendant YouTube, LLC, and all persons acting in privity, in concert, or on YouTube’s behalf, to reinstate Plaintiff’s access to Defendant’s social media platform.”

This was filed over a month ago. I don’t see any news since. Rulings on preliminary injunctions usually occur quickly, so I suspect he was not victorious.
