Donald Trump loses bid to keep lawsuit against Twitter in Florida

U.S. District Judge Robert Scola in Miami said in a written order late on Tuesday that Trump was bound by a "forum selection clause" in Twitter Inc’s terms of service, which mandates that certain lawsuits against the company be heard by a federal judge in the Northern District of California.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump cannot fight his suspension from Twitter in a Florida federal court, but instead must abide by the social media company’s terms of service and sue in California, following a judge’s ruling.

U.S. District Judge Robert Scola in Miami said in a written order late on Tuesday that Trump was bound by a "forum selection clause" in Twitter Inc’s terms of service, which mandates that certain lawsuits against the company be heard by a federal judge in the Northern District of California.

Trump lost his social media megaphone this year after the companies said he violated their policies against glorifying violence.

A mob of his supporters launched a deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 after a Trump speech repeating his false claims that his election defeat was the result of widespread fraud, an assertion rejected by multiple courts, state election officials and members of his own administration.
