On Friday, Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals was struck by the US Capitol on January 6th. , The former president banned social media platforms.

Kosinski declined to comment. John Cole, Trump's chief attorney, said Kosinski came to the rescue from his experience at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and said no other changes were expected for the legal team.

Kozinsky is the United States Court of Appeals, the Ninth Circuit, which covers most of the western United States after launching an investigation following a complaint of illegal activity by a former lawyer. I retired from the Court of Appeals in 2017. And other junior staff.

Kosinski said at the time that maintaining his role would distract the federal judiciary. "I always had a broad sense of humor," he said. "Maybe she didn't pay enough attention to the special challenges and pressures women face in the workplace."

He said it was never his intention to offend the clerk.

The Washington Post first reported allegations of illegal activity against Kosinski in December 2017. Reuters has not independently validated the allegations. The initiation of a complaint is not the discovery of fraud.

In 2019, Kosinski returned to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on behalf of the plaintiff on suspicion of copyright infringement of the movie The Shape of Water. After Kosinski won an important ruling, the two parties agreed to dismiss it in 2021.

He also belonged to a team of lawyers in the Los Angeles Federal Court who sued Paramount Pictures Corporation last month for copyright infringement of the blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick. Paramount states that the claim has no merit.

US District Judge James Donato in San Francisco in May dismissed Trump's proceedings against Twitter and rejected the former president's allegations that the ban violated his freedom of speech. ..

Twitter said his tweet had completely deleted Trump's account because it violated the platform's policy prohibiting "beautification of violence."

When contacted on Friday, a Twitter lawyer introduced Reuters to a tech company, and a Twitter spokesperson declined to comment. (Report by Jacqueline Thomsen of Washington and Mike Skullsera of Maryland, edited by Rebeka Minzer and Rosalva O'Brien)
