C.A. Goldberg, PLLC and Social Media Victims Law Center file suit against Snap, Inc. for Facilitating the Sale of Deadly Fentanyl-laced Pills That Resulted in Eight Deaths

  • Suit claims mainstream social media product facilitates – and profits from – designing a product that markets and sells lethal drugs to young users
  • Suit claims the product design of Snap caused untimely and tragic deaths and injuries

C.A. Goldberg, PLLC, a New York law firm representing victims of catastrophic injuries caused by tech giants, and Social Media Victims Law Center, a legal resource for parents of children and teenage victims harmed by social media addiction, filed suit on behalf of the families of nine young people (eight of whom died) who purchased what they believed were non-lethal medications through Snapchat. The fake pills were in fact lethal doses of fentanyl.

Fentanyl poisoning of minors and young adults is a national emergency. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more teenagers and young adults in the United States have died from fentanyl poisoning in the last two years than COVID, car accidents, or even suicide.
