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!
