Conservative Journalist and Former Jewish Voice reporter Harry Cherry has filed claim that freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is violating his First Amendment rights by blocking him on the social media platform Twitter.
“Libs sued President Trump and made new rules. I am using their new rules against them!” Cherry tweeted Friday, along with screenshots of the lawsuit, in which he plans to represent himself.
I have just filed my lawsuit against @AOC for blocking me on Twitter — a violation of the 1st Amendment as ruled by the court days ago.
Court ruled that public officials can’t block people.

Cherry’s suit follows a similar filing from former Assemblyman Dov Hikind which in both cases cite a recent ruling from the the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan.
The Court found that President Donald Trump can’t block critics on Twitter, the same platform Cherry and Hikind are blocked on by Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez.
He’s asking a judge to order Ocasio-Cortez to unblock him, and bar the account from blocking him and others in the future.
With the recent ruling and the amount of Democrats that block those who don’t assert their beliefs or those that challenge them in any way, one can only surmise there will be many more suits to follow across the country.
