Warren sent a letter to Amazon challenging their promotion of a book that carried Covid-19 falsehoods. The judge held that the plaintiffs had not justified an injunction against Warren’s in that they had little chance of proving prior restraint, showing the letter caused irreparable harm, and showing that any injunction against her was in the public’s interest.
