      Federal Judge citing CDA immunity throws out multiple claims against large dating site

      From an article in TheDartmouth: a Jane Doe plaintiff is suing in Federal Court an online dating site powered by Friendfinder related to a profile posted by a site user. The case arises out of an alleged feigned profile posted by a member that allegedly used her personal information next to a nude photo of another female. The profile was allegedly created by someone using the Dartmouth College network in 2005. The woman, who filed the suit under the pseudonym “Jane Doe,” claims the fictitious profile was posted for over a year before a friend brought it to her attention. A federal judge threw out five of the woman’s claims because internet sites are protected under a federal law known as the Communications Decency Act or CDA from liability for false postings by others, but allowed two to stand in an order handed down recently.
