The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania filed a federal lawsuit on October 12, 2010, on behalf of two Blawnox Borough residents, Melina Brajovic and Peggy Albright, who experienced repeated harassment - and even arrest - at the hands of borough officials after the two began questioning actions of the borough council and posting videos of its public meetings on YouTube.
