    A federal judge ruled Monday that former White House press secretary
    Jen Psaki must comply with a subpoena and offer deposition in a lawsuit
    that claims the Biden administration colluded with Big Tech to censor

    Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana on Monday
    rejected a motion by attorneys for Psaki to block a court-ordered
    deposition, and said there is public interest in "determining whether
    First Amendment free speech rights have been suppressed."

    Monday’s order follows a ruling from U.S. Magistrate Judge Ivan Davis,
    who on Friday transferred the case back to Louisiana after Psaki
    attempted to fight the deposition in a Virginia court where she lives
    and would be deposed. Biden’s Justice Department supported her effort.

    Republican Attorneys General Eric Schmitt of Missouri and Jeff Landry
    of Louisiana first filed the lawsuit in May, accusing top-ranking
    government officials of working with the giant social media companies
    Meta, Twitter and YouTube "under the guise of combating misinformation"
    in order to achieve greater censorship.
