Google Feels Lucky Against Republicans

A federal court ruled that Google is not biased against the Republican National Committee (RNC). This comes from a 2022 court case in which the RNC claimed that Google was suppressing its platforms and speech.

The RNC had claimed that Republican candidates’ email campaigns are filtered more often in Gmail, meaning that they cannot raise as much money as they’d like. The judge ruled that even though this was a “close case…the RNC has not sufficiently pled that Google acted in bad faith in filtering the RNC’s messages into Gmail users’ spam folders.”

The judge pointed out that a law called Section 230 under the Communications Decency Act does allow Google to moderate content by designating certain emails as spam.
