9th Circuit Again Says Model May Sue Site Operator For Negligence In Rape

Mealey's (June 2, 2016, 9:27 AM EDT) -- PASADENA, Calif. — A Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on May 31 found for a second time that a model’s failure to warn claim against the operator of a modeling network website related to a rape is not barred by the Communications Decency Act (CDA), reversing and remanding a lower court ruling dismissing the model’s complaint (Jane Doe No. 14 v. Internet Brands Inc. DBA Modelmayhem.com, No. 12-56638, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 9793).
