A lawsuit seeking a variety of damages, including triple damages for anticlimitative conduct, was filed in Washington state court on Tuesday, two weeks after Paraller returned online after a month-long absence.

Parler went dark when Amazon suspended its web-hosting services after the Capitol attack, stating that Parler failed to effectively contain violent content on its website.
