Donald Trump appeals dismissal of his lawsuit over permanent Twitter ban

By Erik Larson | Bloomberg

Donald Trump is appealing the dismissal of his lawsuit alleging that Twitter Inc. violated his free speech rights by banning the former president from its platform for his role in the Capitol riot.

Trump filed a notice of appeal with the federal court in San Francisco on Monday, saying he will take the case to the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals.

The suit was dismissed in May by US District Judge James Donato, who ruled that Trump hadn’t shown Twitter was acting as a government censor when it banned him for violating its policy against tweets that glorify violence. Trump had argued that Twitter banned him at the behest of Democratic lawmakers.
