Universal Hub is reporting that City Councilor-at-Large Julia Mejia has filed a lawsuit for libel and defamation against Turtleboy News owner Aiden Kearney.
On Wednesday, Mejia filed a defamation lawsuit in Suffolk Superior Court referencing a post by Turtleboy back in 2021 where Kearney claimed that she started live-streaming a crime rather than calling 911. Also included in the suite, are social media posts from 2022 alleging that Mejia is a possible drug user and used her position to avoid an OUI charge by the BPD.
Mejia is hoping to get a jury trial and is looking for financial damages.
