Source for New York Post's Hunter Biden Story Sues Twitter for $500 Million for Defamatory Claim That He's a "Hacker"

Make. Them. Bleed.

A Delaware computer repair shop owner sued Twitter, alleging the social network defamed him by effectively labeling him a "hacker" after his business was cited as the source for info obtained from a laptop allegedly owned by Hunter Biden that served as the basis for several New York Post articles published in October.

In the lawsuit (at this link), John Paul Mac Isaac said he was forced to shut down the Mac Shop, his computer repair business in Wilmington, Del., after Twitter said the NY Post stories violated its "hacked materials" policy and initially disallowed users from sharing links to them....


Mac Issac is demanding $500 million in punitive damages from Twitter plus unspecified compensatory damages and lawyers' fees, as well as an order forcing Twitter to "make a public retraction of all false statements."

...

"Plaintiff is not a hacker and the information obtained from the computer does not [constitute] hacked materials because Plaintiff lawfully gained access to the computer," the lawsuit says. As a result of Twitter's citing its "hacked materials" policy for blocking the Post's articles, Mac Isaac's complaint says he "is now widely considered a hacker" and received negative online reviews and threats against his person and property. He claims he was ultimately forced to shutter the Mac Shop.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

I wonder if he'll be suing Jake Tapper and the CNN/DNC Cartel or labeling him, by inference, part of a Russian disinformation campaign.
