The New Hampshire Supreme Court hears oral arguments Tuesday in a dispute between Facebook and a Seacoast coffee shop.
Emmett Soldati owns Teatotaller in Somersworth. He's suing Facebook for, he says, unfairly deleting his cafe's Instagram account in 2018.
But there, Facebook lawyers argued they were protected from the suit by a federal communications law. The local court agreed.
Soldati wants damages for the business he says he lost with Teatotaller's original Instagram.
He's representing himself in this oral argument, scheduled for Tuesday morning. Facebook has lawyers coming in from Vermont and San Francisco.
