PragerU vows to immediately appeal recent decision to dismiss lawsuit against Google in CA Superior Court
LOS ANGELES — A California judge dismissed PragerU’s state-level lawsuit against Google earlier this week. PragerU intends to immediately appeal the decision in California’s 6th District Court of Appeals.
“Unfortunately, it’s not too surprising that a California judge would dismiss our free speech case, especially given how leftist this state is. We knew from the start this process might have twists and turns, setbacks and successes,” says PragerU CEO Marissa Streit, “but we’re committed for the long haul to take the fight to protect free speech as far as it needs to go. Our freedom is worth it.”
The dismissed lawsuit alleges that Google continues to “unlawfully restrict and restrain speech and expression.” YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, has restricted over 200 PragerU videos, a significant portion of PragerU’s video library, labeling them as “inappropriate for young people.” PragerU maintains its videos are not explicit or inappropriate but have been targeted for promoting conservative ideas.
