Cheri Reisch Unblocks on Twitter the Man Who Sued Her


State Rep. Cheri Toalson Reisch, R-Hallsville has unblocked on Twitter the man who sued her in federal court for allegedly violating his right to free speech in a public forum.

She called the lawsuit frivolous and said Michael Campbell, the man suing her, has never tried to actually communicate with her.

In a written statement circulated Tuesday, Reisch said, “Despite the fact Mr. Campbell has no real intention of communicating with me in a meaningful way, I have unblocked him on Twitter.”

Andy Hirth of TGH Litigation, the firm representing Campbell, said that although he is pleased Campbell was unblocked, the case will move forward.

Campbell, a Columbia lawyer and Centralia resident, filed the suit in June, saying Reisch blocked him for retweeting a comment that criticized her.
