Google, Netflix among tech firms to discuss legal challenge to Trump ban

Alphabet Inc. unit Google Inc., Netflix Inc. and other tech firms have been invited to meet Jan. 31 to discuss the possible filing of an amicus brief, which will support a lawsuit against U.S. President Donald Trump's immigration ban on seven Muslim-majority countries, Reuters reported Jan. 31, citing a source from tech firm GitHub.

GitHub is reportedly organizing the meeting, which also counts Airbnb Inc., Adobe Systems Inc., Box Inc., AdRoll, Dropbox, Mozilla, reddit, Yelp Inc. and Salesforce.com Inc. among invited parties.

Amazon.com Inc. and Expedia Inc. have already filed amicus briefs in support of a lawsuit by the Washington state attorney general, according to the report.

Trump's Jan. 27 executive order prohibits those coming from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya from entering the U.S.
