(CNN)Civil lawsuits seeking to hold Donald Trump accountable for the January 6 insurrection can move forward in court, and the ex-President doesn't have absolute immunity from litigation, a federal judge ruled Friday.

Trump's statements to his supporters before the attack on the US Capitol "is the essence of civil conspiracy," Judge Amit Mehta wrote in a 112-page opinion, because Trump spoke about himself and rally-goers working "towards a common goal" of fighting and walking down Pennsylvania Avenue.

"The President's January 6 Rally Speech can reasonably be viewed as a call for collective action," Mehta said.
