Immunity ruling won by MySpace

May 17, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Federal law gives MySpace.com immunity from a lawsuit over the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl by a man she met on the social networking website, a federal appeals court ruled.

The U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit that a Texas girl's family filed against MySpace and its parent company, News Corp. The family said MySpace didn't protect young users from sexual predators.
