Heights residents accused of retaliating over Facebook posts
Heights residents are being sued over claims they retaliated against a school employee after allegedly hacking into his private Facebook account and misinterpreting his posts.
Tony Rose filed a lawsuit on Sept. 12 in the Harris County District Court against Aaron Spence and Heights residents Carol Mosteit and Chris Roddiger, citing retaliation and computer hacking.
Rose, a High School for Law Enforcement employee, says his private Facebook page was hacked and invaded by Roddiger, dean of the school. According to the brief, Roddiger incorrectly reported her findings to Mosteit, the school principal, claiming she discovered a Facebook conversation between Rose and his wife criticizing Mosteit.
The school also employed Rose’s wife.
The suit alleges that Mosteit and Roddiger embarked on a campaign to retaliate against Rose and his wife, which included linking Rose’s private Facebook page to the school’s website and eventually terminating his wife’s employment.
Rose is seeking damages and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Missouri City attorney Larry Watts.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-54142.
