The case is Missouri vs. Biden.

It could bring the trampling of American free speech rights by the Federal government centerstage, if there’s still any honesty or integrity left in American jurisprudence.

But that’s a very open question.

The case got a boost this week, via an amended complaint that adds more government agencies to a list that colluded with tech companies to censor defendants, many of them public figures.

The case also added 41 defendants to the suit, bringing the total to 54, as reported by The Epoch Times.

The suit argues that supposedly private entities lost their status when they were directed by, and coordinated with government agencies and figures to censor the free speech of the parties named.

But the suit is a proxy for a much broader use by the government to censor opinions regarding the COVID War, and more recently, the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
The legal filing, viewable here, sets out persuasive allegations:

Some of the plaintiffs in the case include doctors censored for dissident opinions expressed regarding COVID War policies and medical treatments, including Dr. Jayanta Bhattacharya, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, and Dr. Martin Kulldorff.

The Attorney Generals of several states, including Erich S. Schmitt of Missouri and Jeffrey M. Landrey of Louisiana, are supporting the suit.

Government Voiding Of Bill Of Rights, Via Tech Proxies 

The case against the government is strong, if evidence is the criteria.

For example, White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andrew

Slavitt is named for calling on Twitter to ban journalist Alex Berenson (formerly of The New York Times) over supposed misinformation.

Slavitt also allegedly communicated with Facebook regarding censoring posts on that platform.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, perhaps the most prominent government official presiding during the COVID War, is named in the suit, for among other things, coordinating with Facebook at the highest levels to favor and promote official federal government COVID narratives. 

Many Federal agencies and operatives are named in the suit, along with instances of censorship and big tech coordination, including the FDA, DHS, DHHS and the State Department.

The lawsuit identifies what the Trends Journal has long argued regarding the Biden administration using claims of “dangerous misinformation” to undercut the free speech and political rights of Americans:

The role of political bodies including Congress, as well as various federal agencies, in coercing and directing tech companies to engage in censorship, is a major feature of the lawsuit.  

It alleges that government figures used section 230 of federal law as a key “carrot and stick” to gain tech company cooperation. Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 gives immunity to online platforms from civil liability based on third-party content posted on the platforms.

The Trends Journal has extensively called attention to the unconstitutional censorship measures and tactics of the Biden administration and federal government, in articles including:
