A judge has rejected an effort by multiple top Biden administration officials that would keep them from having to testify in a lawsuit.
The lawsuit alleges that the administration colluded with social media companies to suppress contradictory viewpoints.
The lawsuit accuses the Biden administration of working to encourage social media censorship.
"Judge Terry Doughty, of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, on Wednesday denied the partial stays requests from Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Jen Easterly and White House Digital Strategy Director Rob Flaherty," reported JustTheNews.
"Other defendants in the case filed last month by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry include White House Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and former Disinformation Governance Board Director Nina Jankowicz," JustTheNews reported.
The attorneys general accused the administration of working to encourage social media platforms to control and censor "disfavored" views and speakers.
"The Court finds that both the public interest and the interest of the other parties in preserving free speech significantly outweigh the inconvenience the three deponents will have in preparing for and giving their depositions," Judge Doughty wrote in his ruling.
Doughty is a Trump-appointed judge.
