SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Two California residents are suing a state senator for blocking them from a social media account in a case similar to a successful lawsuit that barred President Trump from blocking critics on his Twitter account. Suzanne Rummel and Marlene Burkitt sued Democratic Sen. Richard Pan of Sacramento alleging that barring them from his Twitter account violates their First Amendment free speech rights. Pan is a physician and both women's accounts show they oppose his efforts to promote universal vaccinations of children.
