Case Update: President Donald J. Trump’s Legal Team Responds to YouTube’s Motion to Dismiss

January 18, 2022

Last night, President Donald J. Trump’s legal team filed their Response to YouTube’s Motion to Dismiss and their Reply in support of President Trump’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction.

The case is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (Silicon Valley), Judge Jeffrey White presiding. The Defendant’s motion to dismiss President Trump’s lawsuit is part of the usual Big Tech legal playbook that the President’s team predicted before the initial filing in July of 2021 in Florida. These motions move the case one step closer to the United States Supreme Court deciding the constitutionality of Section 230, the protection that enables Big Tech to violate American’s freedom of speech with zero accountability.

In a case founded in First Amendment violations, it is without surprise that the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice has filed a Motion to Intervene, asking the court NOT to rule on the constitutionality of Section 230, citing the doctrine of Constitutional Avoidance. This indicates the great lengths the Biden Administration will go to protect Big Tech and their unconstitutional censorship of the American people.
