A lawsuit that seeks class-action status has been filed in federal court in California by a team of law firms intent on putting the brakes on purveyors of child pornography.
Filed on behalf of an unidentified victim, the case seeks to establish rules to identify anyone uploading child porn and to require media companies profiting from such porn to disable suspect videos.
The case, on behalf of “Jane Doe” and “others similarly situated,” names as defendants WebGroup Czech Republic, WGCZ Holding, WGCZ Limited and other related organizations as well as individuals Stephane Michael Pacaud and Deborah Malorie Pacaud.
The lawsuit in federal court in Los Angeles was filed by the National Center of Sexual Exploitation Law Center, which was joined by five other “survivor-focused” litigation teams. . .
Dani Pinter, senior legal counsel of the center, said XVideos “not only violated the law by hosting Jane Doe’s child sexual abuse material, it profited from her abuse given that each image and video of her was monetized.” (Read more from “Media Company Sued for Profiting From Child Pornography” HERE)
