Independent journalist Alex Berenson has filed a federal lawsuit against Twitter challenging his ban from the social media platform over a tweet questioning the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines.

The lawsuit filed on Monday in US District Court for Northern California seeks Berenson’s reinstatement to Twitter and unspecified monetary damages over his permanent ban in August this year.

Since his ban, Berenson has gone on to author the bestseller Pandemia.

Berenson’s attorneys said in the complaint:

“Mr. Berenson’s claim that the COVID-19 vaccines do not ‘stop infection’ or ‘transmission’ of COVID-19 was true at the time and is true now.

It is undisputed that vaccinated persons can contract and spread COVID-19.”

The lawsuit highlights that Dr. Anthony Fauci stated in published interviews that vaccinated people can still be infected.

Berenson’s attorneys also argue that he has ‘a uniquely viable claim that Twitter acted on behalf of the federal government in censoring and barring him from its platform‘ as it came just weeks after President Joe Biden called for a crackdown on COVID-19 vaccines misinformation on social media.

After Berenson was banned, one Twitter user wrote:

“Does anyone else see Twitter’s suspension of @AlexBerenson as proof that Alex was right? The suspension probably (and justifiably) increases suspicion of the vaccines.

While another wrote:

“Every word of Alex Berenson’s tweet is TRUTH, yet the commies that run this site decided it doesn’t support the narrative and permanently suspended him for it!”

The outspoken critic of the COVID vaccines had previously enjoyed a large social media following, with over 340,000 followers prior to his permanent Twitter ban.
