CASE ENTRY

Crosby v. Twitter, Inc.

In June 2016, Omar Mateen pledged his allegiance to ISIS, entered the Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Fla. and opened fire, killing 49 people and injuring another 53. Can the victims and their family members bring suit under the Anti-Terrorism Act against Twitter, Facebook, and Google for providing the platforms through which Mateen became self-radicalized? Sixth Circuit: “We sympathize with Plaintiffs—they suffered through one of the worst terrorist attacks in American history. ‘But not everything is redressable in a court.’”
