US court: Facebook not liable for supporting terrorist groups

A US court has dismissed two lawsuits that accused Facebook of supporting terrorism by allowing them to use the platform for the pursuit of terrorist goals. According to the judge, the law ‘prevents courts from entertaining civil actions that seek to impose liability on defendants like Facebook for allowing third parties to post offensive or harmful content or failing to remove such content once posted’. One of the lawsuits was filed in July last year by families of U.S. victims of a Palestinian attack.
