Trump Sues Big Tech CEOs; D.C. Court Suspends Giuliani’s Law License

HeadlineJul 08, 2021

Former President Trump has sued the CEOs of Google, Facebook and Twitter in a class-action lawsuit. Trump is seeking “punitive damages” for what he says is censorship, and for platforms that have banned him to restore his accounts.

In other Trump news, legal experts say more indictments against Trump allies are likely, after the Manhattan district attorney last week charged the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, with criminal tax fraud.

Meanwhile, a Washington, D.C., court has suspended Rudy Giuliani’s law license, two weeks after a similar move in New York. The suspensions are related to Giuliani’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
