Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just got hit with a bombshell lawsuit, and it could have major implications.
Former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind filed a lawsuit against Ocasio-Cortez in federal court on Tuesday for blocking users on Twitter based on their personal viewpoints.
The lawsuit came just hours after the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that President Donald Trump is legally prohibited from blocking users on Twitter.
The federal appeals court ruled that because Trump uses his personal Twitter account to communicate with the public about his administration, all users have a First Amendment right to see his tweets.
While the ruling is certainly questionable, it may have set a major precedent that brings notable liberals into the spotlight.
