(Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Monday dismiss X Corp’s lawsuit against a nonprofit group that has criticized a rise in hate speech on the social media platform once known as Twitter since Elon Musk took it over.

U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in San Francisco granted the dismissal request by the Center for Countering Digital Hate, saying the lawsuit had been brought as a means toward “punishing the defendants for their speech.”
