Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Parler has dropped its antitrust lawsuit against Amazon, which it filed after AWS took it offline in the wake of the Capitol riots”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Parler has dropped its antitrust lawsuit against its former web host Amazon Web Services (AWS), which in January brought the controversial social-media app offline.

At the time, Amazon said Parler, favored by the far-right, had failed to moderate content that incited violence. Parler disputed the tech giant's claims, and filed a lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Parler filed a motion in a Washington federal court to dismiss the case, without giving a reason.

Tuesday was Parler's deadline to file an amended complaint in its case against AWS, after getting a two-week extension from the court, according to The Verge, which first reported on the news.

Parler returned online in mid-February with new web host SkySilk, after reportedly being rejected by at least six other large providers.
