Richmond, Va. (WTKR) – A Facebook case being heard in Richmond could affect the rest of the nation; Facebook’s “Like” button gets clicked more than three billion times each day, according to Facebook administrators.

The act of “liking” on Facebook is now at the center of a case being heard in the U.S Court of appeals for the Fourth Circuit in downtown Richmond, according to WTVR/CBS 6.

Six former employees at the Hampton, Virginia sheriff’s department claim they were fired by Sheriff B.J. Roberts for clicking the like button on his opponent’s page during a 2009 election.
