The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has denied a group of plaintiffs’ attempts to sue the federal government over the suspension or termination of their Twitter (now known as X) accounts after posting content the platform labeled as “misinformation” regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The court affirmed the district court’s dismissal of their complaint for lack of jurisdiction and failure to state claim, after concluding that Twitter’s actions weren’t traceable to the federal government.
