Another Appellate Court Rejects “Material Support for Terrorist” Claims Against Social Media Platforms–Crosby v. Twitter

This suit involves the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. The shooter Mateen claims to have self-radicalized by consuming terrorist content on social media. After the shooting, ISIS claimed responsibility. The plaintiffs didn’t sue Mateen or ISIS but instead sued Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. According to the court, “the substance of the complaint was that Defendants’ platforms were so poorly policed as to afford Mateen encouragement and assistance.” The Sixth Circuit dismissed the ...

Tenth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Sinclair v. Twitter

This is the 10th different case where a judge has rejected allegations that Twitter and other social media services materially support terrorists. As with most of the others, the plaintiffs’ lawyers are Excolo Law and 1-800 LAWFIRM. I’ve blogged the other nine dismissals, so at this point, there’s not much new to say about this case. Most of the plaintiffs’ arguments have been rejected in prior cases, and the plaintiffs’ lawyers are building a thick wall of adverse precedent that has become near...

Ninth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Clayborn v. Twitter

This is the ninth different case where a court concludes that social media services aren’t liable for providing “material support” to terrorists. This particular litigation involves the San Bernardino shooting, but the underlying incident doesn’t matter much. Instead, the court is governed by the Ninth Circuit’s Fields v. Twitter case, which held that social media services aren’t proximate causes of terrorist attacks. That ruling pretty much dictates this dismissal. So apologies for my light com...

Eighth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Copeland v. Twitter

This is another 1-800 LAW FIRM lawsuit against social media providers for allegedly materially supporting terrorists. Like the others, it fails. In light of the Ninth Circuit’s Fields opinion, dismissing a similar suit on proximate cause grounds, this opinion doesn’t break any new ground. The court’s overview pretty much says it all (note: the truncation of the first paragraph appears to be a mistake in the court’s opinion): Sean and Brodie Copeland were intentionally struck and killed by a truc...

Another Social Media “Material Support to Terrorists” Lawsuit Fails–Cain v. Twitter

This is one of the many cases against social media platforms alleging that they provided “material support” to terrorists. As a group, these lawsuits have gone nowhere, and this one doesn’t either. ATA Direct Liability. As with other cases, the plaintiffs do not show “proximate causation” between the terrorist attacks and the social media platforms: Most of the allegations are about ISIS’s use of Twitter in general. The relatively few allegations involving Twitter that are specific to the attack...

Facebook Defeats Lawsuit Over Material Support for Terrorists–Cohen v. Facebook

We’ve seen a cluster of lawsuits against social media sites based on their alleged provision of material support to terrorists. The first substantive ruling–in Fields v. Twitter, now on appeal to the Ninth Circuit–was a decisive plaintiff loss, casting a dark shadow on all of the other cases. The second substantive ruling, in the Cohen and Force v. Facebook cases, also is a decisive plaintiff loss. As courts keep explaining to plaintiffs why these lawsuits aren’t meritorious, when will we see th...
