A federal judge in San Francisco has rejected the trial of former President Donald Trump lawsuit against Twitter who was trying to restore his banned account on the platform, according to a court case.

The decision is a victory for Twitter, which asked Judge James Donato of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to dismiss the lawsuit.

Rejecting Trump’s case, Donato claims that Twitter did not act as an agent of the US government – as Trump claims – when close his account and therefore did not violate Trump’s right to freedom of speech in the First Amendment.

“The amended complaint does not plausibly claim a First Amendment claim against Twitter,” the ruling said. “The plaintiffs’ first lawsuit was dismissed.” Donato also dismissed other Trump allegations, such as that Section 230 – the law that protects technology platforms from litigation for most consumer-generated content – is unconstitutional.

Twitter declined to comment on the rejection of the lawsuit.

Trump may continue to pursue the case, with Donato deciding he can file an amended appeal, although the ruling also says Trump will not be allowed to add new legal claims.

Ever since Trump filed the lawsuit, billionaire Elon Musk has done so is looking to buy Twitter for $ 44 billion. Musk said he wanted to restoring “freedom of speech” to the platform and conservatives believe that Trump can be restored under Musk’s ownership of the platform. Trump has said he will not return to Twitter, even if his account is restored, highlighting his new venture on social media Truth Social.
