LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A former Kentucky lawyer has filed a lawsuit against Facebook, accusing it of committing fraud by suppressing his posts containing conservative viewpoints.

Eric Deters is a former lawyer in Ohio and Northern Kentucky and an avid supporter of former President Donald Trump.

He filed his lawsuit after he said he discovered his posts weren’t being properly displayed to the public.

He alleges his posts were targeted even if he paid the social media company to boost them.

Deters retired from practicing law after his license to practice was revoked in Kentucky.
