One, just one class-action lawsuit against Facebook by subscribers who have been censored, blocked, or fact-checked would restore Freedom of Speech.
“When Congress enacted Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, it made an implicit deal with every Interactive Computer Service (ICS): at least attempt to clean your website of defamatory or otherwise illegal third-party content in exchange for immunity from vicarious liability. However, the majority of courts applying Section 230 have since construed this aptly-titled “good Samaritan” law as a grant of blanket ICS immunity, offering protection regardless of whether an ICS actually regulates or edits its website. This piece analyzes an apparent split among the circuit courts, and explains that blanket ICS immunity does not square with Congress’ underlying intent of encouraging ICS self-regulation. In the end, this article highlights four potential scenarios in which an ICS could lose its Section 230 “good Samaritan” immunity status when it does not act like a “good Samaritan.””
I believe the settlement of this matter of unbridled censorship of Christian and conservative viewpoints can only be settled by either amendment to the CDA or clarification by the Supreme Court. I believe that only opinion by the latter can restore free speech to the American people.
If you would prove standing in a lawsuit, you must have documented proof of censorship against you or your organization and the easiest way is to send an email to yourself with screenshots and/or copies of communications from Facebook. Emails will provide a time-and-date stamp and your emails can be easily transmitted to an attorney representing you and/or your affected group.
