MySpace Statement Regarding the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas Ruling in the Jane Doe/Julie Doe vs. MySpace, Inc. and News Corporation Suit
LOS ANGELES–LAWFUEL – US Litigation News –“We applaud the judge’s decision to dismiss the plaintiffs’ claims of negligence, fraud and misrepresentation against MySpace. This decision reaffirms that under federal law Internet sites like MySpace cannot be held liable for content posted by, or wrongdoing committed by, individuals who visit our site.
“MySpace has always been concerned about what happened to Julie Doe because we take the safety and security of our community very seriously. However, a law suit against MySpace was not the appropriate way to redress any harm to her.
“We will continue to work to make our site even safer by creating new features and educating our users about online safety.”
