Twitter has refused to disclose the names of the person or people operating the accounts, leading Nunes to file a lawsuit last year alleging he has been defamed on the platform by the two anonymous accounts as well as Republican political strategist Liz Mair.

Nunes's attorney, Steven Biss, told The Fresno Bee that after Virginia Judge John Marshall opined that Twitter is not obligated to release the identities, finding out who they are so they can properly be served lawsuits is virtually impossible.
