A Delaware computer repairman has filed a $500 million lawsuit against Twitter for alleged defamation in replication to the repairman’s involution with Hunter Biden’s laptop, which became the subject of bombshell stories published by the New York Post ahead of the 2020 Presidential election.
John Paul Mac Isaac of Wilmington, Delaware, is suing Twitter for defamation, claiming the platform had inequitably branded him a “hacker” via the platform’s censorship of a story by the New York Post on emails found on Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop, reports NY Post.
The news outlet had reported on damaging content found on a laptop that was left at Mac Isaac’s repair shop in April 2019. The laptop was never amassed — until the repairman later turned the laptop over to the FBI as well as a replica of the hard drive which he gave to an attorney working with Rudy Giuliani.
In October, Twitter had censored the distribution of NY Post stories citing information found on Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop, labeling the articles as having breached the convivial media giant’s rules against posting content derived from “hacked materials.”
Following backlash, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey later admitted that the company was “wrong” to censor the NY Post‘s story on Hunter Biden. “Straight blocking of URLs was erroneous, and we updated our policy and enforcement to fine-tune,” tweeted Dorsey. “Our goal is to endeavor to integrate context, and now we have capabilities to do that.”

“Plaintiff is not a hacker and the information obtained from the computer does not [include] hacked materials because Plaintiff lawfully gained access to the computer, first with the sanction of its owner, “Biden,” and then, after Biden failed to retrieve the hard drive despite Plaintiff’s requests, in accordance with the Mac Shop’s forsook property policy,” the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit integrates that as a result of this, Mac Isaac and his business have received threats, as well as negative reviews, and that he is “now widely considered a hacker.” “Plaintiff, as a direct result of “Defendant’s” actions and verbalizations is now widely considered a hacker and, on the same day Defendant categorized the Plaintiff as a hacker, Plaintiff commenced to receive negative reviews of his business as well as threats to his person and property,” the lawsuit reads.
“The term ‘hacker’ is widely viewed as disparaging, concretely when verbalized about someone who owns a computer repair business,” the lawsuit integrates. Mac Isaac is authoritatively mandating $500 million in damages, as well as a public retraction from Twitter.
The Justice Department is now investigating the finances of Hunter Biden, including scrutinizing some of his Chinese business dealings, and other transactions. You can follow Alana Mastrangelo on Facebook and Twitter at @ARmastrangelo, on Parler at @alana, and on Instagram.
