The Fresno-area Republican filed the lawsuit against the social media company and three individual users in Virginia state court in March, and is seeking seeking $250 million in damages for defamation.

Two of the accounts in question, Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, often post derogatory memes directed at the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The third user being sued is Republican strategist Liz Mair.

Twitter asked the Virginia judge to dismiss the lawsuit during Friday's hearing since the company has no operations in the state. The judge did not issue a ruling but one could be coming in the next week, according to the Fresno Bee.
