Lauren Boebert can continue to block former Colorado state lawmaker on Twitter, federal judge rules

The Colorado Sun: U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert will not be required to unblock a former state lawmaker from her personal Twitter account, a federal judge in Colorado ruled Thursday. 

Boebert, a Garfield County Republican, did not violate the free speech rights of former state lawmaker Bri Buentello because she blocked Buentello from her personal Twitter account, @laurenboebert, rather than her official government account, @RepBoebert, U.S. District Court Judge Daniel D. Domenico ruled. 

“Blocking a Twitter user on an account created before she was elected to office is something Ms. Boebert could do before she was in office and could do after she leaves office,” Domenico, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, wrote.
