GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -A federal court judge has dismissed a lawsuit against State Representative Chuck Clemons, over his objections.

A constituent named Peter Attwood filed suit, accusing Clemons of restricting his rights by blocking him on social media. Attwood later filed to dismiss his lawsuit, but Clemons wanted to go to trial to vindicate himself. As an alternative, Clemons wanted Attwood to pay court costs.
