Facebook, Zuckerberg Sued for $1 Billion
(Washington, D.C.) Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg, are being sued for more than $1 billion for their role in furthering a radical Palestinian page called "Third Intifada," which threatened Jews with death.
Former U.S. Senate candidate and founder of Judicial Watch, Larry Klayman, filed the lawsuit.
As alleged in the complaint, one can explain the initial refusal to take down the page as an effort by the Zuckerberg and Facebook to increase the social network's net worth based on viewership and use.Based on my non-professional legal opinion, I'd say the case has merit.
It is not in dispute that Facebook has profited handsomely by the turmoil in the Middle East.
The complaint alleges assault and negligence, including willful and wanton conduct, gross negligence and recklessness on the part of the Defendants, as it has put Mr. Klayman's life at risk, as well as other similarly situated Jews who are prominent public figures and otherwise.
The complaint reserves the right to be amended into a class action suit and prays for compensatory and punitive damages in excess of $1 Billion Dollars.
UPDATE by SH: I found Intifada3.com[Arabic], which appears to be hosted in Germany. The site appears to have all the latest updates on Facebook Intifada.
UPDATE II by SH: No, this isn't a April Fools joke. The copy of the complaint can be found here[PDF]
