The former Delaware computer repair shop owner who says he obtained Hunter Biden’s laptop sued Twitter for a second time over how the social media platform handled a New York Post exposé on President Joe Biden‘s son, Hunter Biden, alleging the tech company defamed him by implying he was a hacker, The Washington Examiner reported Friday.
On Thursday, John Paul Mac Isaac filed his lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida. He claims in the suit that he was forced to shut down his business, in part, because Twitter labeled the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop as being hacked materials, which he denied, and he said had damaged his reputation, as reported.
A Twitter spokesperson declined to comment to SaraACarter.com on the latest Mac Isaac lawsuit.
The previous lawsuit, also alleging defamation and demanding $500 million in damages, was filed in the same court and tossed out by a judge in late December due to lack of jurisdiction. In his new case, according to The Examiner, Mac Isaac attempts to bypass the jurisdiction issue, with him also saying that there had been defamation damages greater than $75,000 and that the exact award amount could be determined after a trial.
