A federal government lawsuit to prevent Amazon from selling cloud services to government agencies



The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that a federal government agency has the right to stop Amazon from purchasing cloud services from the online retailer, even if the company had already agreed to do so.

The court said that a government agency may have an interest in preventing Amazon from obtaining cloud services through an agreement it reached with Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) in 2016.

Amazon has been trying to sell cloud services as part of a partnership with the Department of Homeland Security, which the Justice Department has said could violate federal antitrust laws.

The DOJ has also accused Amazon of illegally marketing cloud services.

The ruling is the latest to hit Amazon in the past few weeks as the company seeks to expand its cloud services in more locations.
