A new lawsuit has been filed in U.S. District Court against Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell.

The lawsuit was filed by two people who had posts deleted from the Sheriff's Office Facebook pages, and the Sheriff's Office had no record of them when asked in public records requests.

Both businessman, Savitar Charudattan, and Attorney, Michale Hoffman, say their accounts are also banned by the Sheriff's facebook page.

The lawsuit claims their freedom of speech rights are being violated, and asks for unspecified damages.
