The controversial blogger Joe Albero is seeking $200-thousand from the Mayor of Salisbury Jim Ireton.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the suit was filed in June.
Albero, who established a residence in downtown Salisbury on the second floor of his office in March, is seeking damages for the Mayor calling him Delaware blogger.
The blogger alleges this raises questions about his eligibility to run for office.
City law requires that candidates must be a resident of the city for at least one year before the election.
