Texas Supreme Court Rules That Facebook Can Be Held Liable For Sex Trafficking On Its Platform

The Texas Supreme Court ruled Friday that Facebook can be held liable for sex traffickers that use its platform to recruit and prey on child victims. As the Houston Chronicle reported, the ruling followed three local lawsuits involving teenage victims who had met their traffickers through Facebook’s messaging tools. The plaintiffs said Facebook was negligent and did not attempt to key sex trafficking off its technology.

Of course, the big issue here is sex crimes taking place on a social media giant with reckless abandon. But considering everything they did to suppress information that hurt Democrats last year, any action by the courts that hurts a Facebook or a Twitter is good news if you’re a conservative.
