The U.S. Supreme Court has decided to not hear a legal case regarding former President Donald Trump and his banning of critics on his Twitter account that is still currently suspended.
Trump had appealed the case following a decision by New York’s 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Trump had violated First Amendment law by banning critics of his presidency. Trump was replaced as President of the United States (POTUS) by Joe Biden in January.
Given that Trump is no longer the sitting president, justices on the Supreme Court elected to decline to hear the case. The Supreme Court reversed the decision by the 2nd Circuit Court and awarded Trump his appeal.
Trump was famous for using Twitter during his term in office, often using it to spread misinformation, promote his personal political agenda and fire back at critics. Twitter suspended Trump’s account following the Capitol riots on January 6 and the account remains suspended.
