Coral Gables Suing Social Media Sites to Uncover Person Behind Negative Comments About City

Someone on social media is criticizing the city of Coral Gables - and now city leaders are fighting back in court

An unknown person set up a handful of social media accounts criticizing the city for its use of private security guards starting in May.

Later that month, the city threatened to fine Facebook and Instagram $500 a day if they didn't remove the posts.

Now, the city is suing the multi-billion-dollar businesses in an attempt to get the name, phone number, and address of whoever is responsible for the derogatory posts.

NBC 6 has reached out to Facebook for comment.
