On December 7, 2020, Judge Richard Seeborg of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California issued his ruling on Facebook’s motion to dismiss in my lawsuit over their censorship of certain posts that I made. He ruled completely in favor of Facebook and dismissed my claims with prejudice. A copy of his decision can be found here.
Based on the questions that Judge Seeborg asked at oral argument, I am not surprised by his decision. Indeed, I predicted it in the immediate aftermath of the oral argument.
Do I think that his decision is wrong? Absolutely.
For now, I will consider my options for appealing his ruling to the Ninth Circuit.
