    They can sue under antitrust laws. Would they win? Most likely not. Big businesses such as Apple and Google will do whatever they feel is necessary to keep their huge and powerful status. And, if it means having a hand in destroying someone else, like free-speech Parler, they will.

    I hope they do and they win big. 
    Apple and Google said ot was to force them to moderate their users.  I know they do moderate some....because I have seen articles criticizing Parler for banning users. Cannot ban if not moderating.

    Don't get me wrong, I hope they sue and win as well. But with all of the lying, corruption, and power trips within these huge companies and within the judicial system, it will be quite difficult. I will say this as well, huge changes are coming and the hammer is about to fall. :)

    There would have to be proof of collusion among the companies to restrict trade or form a monopoly. It's not easy to win an anti-trust lawsuit.
