Colorado state senator settles lawsuit over blocking people on social media

The Denver Post: A Colorado Republican senator has agreed not to block anyone on his public social media accounts anymore after he was sued over it.

Sen. Ray Scott, R- Grand Junction, promised to unblock people on his official Facebook and Twitter accounts as part of the settlement of a lawsuit with one of his constituents, Anne Landman.

Landman and the ACLU of Colorado sued Scott, alleging that blocking her violated her First Amendment rights because it kept her from being able to participate in public discussions that took place on his account. Landman claimed Scott refused several requests to unblock or unban her.
