A Call to Amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act

I AM JANE DOE chronicles the story of several children who filed suit against Backpage and the Village Voice for injuries they sustained by virtue of being sex trafficked online.

Nearly all of those suits were dismissed under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act which protects online providers from liability for any third party content. However, a court recently expanded Section 230 in one of the Jane Doe cases to protect actual criminal conduct (as opposed to passively hosting speech), thus prompting the calls of the mothers and children in these suits (and thousands like them) to close this loophole.
