Ocasio-Cortez asks Brooklyn judge to toss lawsuit alleging she’s violating Dov Hikind’s rights by blocking him on Twitter

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked a judge Thursday to toss a lawsuit alleging she’s violating former Brooklyn Assemblyman Dov Hikind’s constitutional rights by blocking him on Twitter.

Lawyers repping the social media-savvy Queens-Bronx congresswoman argued in court papers filed in Brooklyn federal court that Hikind “lacks standing to bring the action” and that Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t been “properly served” with the suit.

Ocasio-Cortez’s legal team is asking that the judge dismiss Hikind’s lawsuit with prejudice so that a similar action can’t be brought again.

Ocasio-Cortez’s attorneys admitted she had blocked Hikind, but contended it wasn’t because of his opinions.

Hikind was blocked after repeatedly slamming Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter because he took issue with her calling the Trump administration’s immigration detention centers “concentration camps.”

In a statement Thursday, the ex-Brooklyn legislator blasted the 29-year-old congresswoman as “a coward.”
