C. A. GOLDBERG PLLC X LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER
June 21, 2015
Tune in tonight to HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Although all contributors were sworn to secrecy, tonight’s topic on revenge porn was already leaked. It was a pleasure educating John and his producers about civil remedies available to victims and the status of revenge porn laws around the state. Although I won’t be on the air, hopefully some of my information and ideas will be.
This week’s success in the fight to end revenge porn is unprecedented. Google announced a ban on revenge porn which enables victims to request removal of pages from search engine results. Three new states established criminal laws bringing the total up to23. Charles Evans entered a guilty plea in the criminal prosecution alleging his hacking and conspiracy with Hunter Moore in the now-defunct revenge porn website isanyoneup,com. The petition for a federal bill has well over 121,000 names. In litigation news, on Thursday, I filed a Title IX complaint with the US Department of Education Office for Civil Rights against a school district for the egregious mishandling of a revenge porn situation at a high school.
Look for me in the studio audience tonight!
