Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos sat four seats away from Donald Trump in December after accepting the president-elect’s invitation to a technology roundtable. Now, less than two months later, Bezos has publicly declared his support for a lawsuit filed against Trump and his administration. Life comes at you fast.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, says that Trump’s executive order banning the entry of visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries to the United States will hurt both Washington state’s economy as well as its businesses. Microsoft and Expedia, also based in Washington, are supporting the lawsuit as well. 

But these three aren’t the only tech companies now publicly opposing Trump’s immigration ban: Github, Google, Airbnb and Netflix are among a slew of other companies planning to meet on Tuesday to discuss filing an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit against the immigration executive order, CNBC reports. It’s unclear whether the amicus briefs will offer support for the aforementioned lawsuit or another suit filed on Monday by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
