Federal Judge Who Awarded Big Free Speech Win In Missouri v. Biden Denies Biden Regime’s Motion To Stay
The federal judge who issued a July 4 preliminary injunction blocking the Biden regime from colluding with Big Tech to censor Americans denied the administration’s motion to stay on Monday.
Less than one week after he agreed the federal government appeared to lead “the most massive attack against free speech in United States’ history” and is “alleged to have blatantly ignored the First Amendment’s right to free speech,” Judge Terry Doughty of Lousiana’s Western District Court ruled against the Biden administration’s assertion that agencies “face irreparable harm with each day the injunction remains in effect.”
“Although this Preliminary Injunction involves numerous agencies, it is not as broad as it appears,” Doughty wrote in his 13-page ruling. “It only prohibits something the Defendants have no legal right to do — contacting social-media companies for the purpose of urging, encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner, the removal, deletion, suppression, or reduction of content containing protected free speech posted on social-media platforms.”
