Judge Dismisses Elon Musk Lawsuit Against Center for Countering Digital Hate

HeadlineMar 29, 2024

A federal judge has tossed Elon Musk’s lawsuit against the watchdog Center for Countering Digital Hate, writing in his ruling, “This case is about punishing the Defendants for their speech.” Elon Musk sued the nonprofit after they reported that hate speech, racism and misinformation soared on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, after the billionaire took ownership of the site in 2022. The Center for Countering Digital Hate welcomed the lawsuit’s dismissal, writing on X, “We’ll continue exposing hate & lies on X, and campaigning for social media bosses like Musk to be held accountable.” Click here to see our interview about this case with the head of the Center for Countering Digital Hate.
