SAN DIEGO (AP) - A federal judge says the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has the right to get rid of its Facebook page.

U-T San Diego (https://bit.ly/1Do5oSI ) says the page was taken down two months ago after an Oceanside gun-parts dealer sued the department.

Dimitrios Karras claimed his free-speech rights were violated when officials removed two of his postings to the page that were critical of Sheriff Bill Gore and banned him from the page.

He asked a judge to order the agency to restore the page and his comments. That motion was rejected Tuesday but the lawsuit can still proceed in federal court.
