Former Democratic New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind told Fox News Tuesday that he is preparing to sue Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., for blocking users on Twitter based on their personal viewpoints, following a federal appeals court ruling barring President Trump from doing the same.

Asked where his lawsuit would be filed and whether other plaintiffs would be involved, Hikind told Fox News in an email, “All that’s being determined at the moment.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Most likely we will be [the] only plaintiff, but [we will be] citing other examples,” Hikind continued. “The claim is [the] same as [the] one against Trump. She uses that account for political/policy commentary, so to shut a citizen off from her statements is a problem — as well as blocking me from petitioning her or seeking redress.”

Fox News is told the lawsuit would likely focus on Ocasio-Cortez’s popular and active @AOC account, which has more than 4.6 million followers. Ocasio-Cortez maintains a much smaller and rarely used official account, @RepAOC, with only 171,000 followers, but uses her personal @AOC account to discuss politics and engage with constituents and colleagues regularly.
