A Georgia family has filed a lawsuit against a grocery store worker for defamation and libel over social media posts that accused them of planning and participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The lawsuit, filed by Kathryn, Thelma and William Cagle, alleges that Rayven Goolsby “disparaged and defamed” the family through online harassment. The family members accuse her of damaging their reputations and associating them with criminal conduct, The Washington Post reports.

According to the Post, Kathryn Cagle took to Facebook on Jan. 6 to ask for prayers for herself and her mother, Thelma Cagle, writing, “Yes, Mama and I are in Washington, D.C."

“I thought Kate Cagle [was] on the planning committee, I hope she doesn’t plan to make a career out of planning riots,” grocery store worker Goolsby later wrote on Facebook.

In another post directed to Thelma Cagle, Goolsby wrote, “Didn’t you attend the insurrection? I am pretty sure you did.”
