John Doe v. Snap, Inc. d/b/a Snapchat, L.L.C., d/b/a Snap, L.L.C.
April 18, 2024
Supreme Court of the United States

CHILD USA together with the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and the Kempe Foundation drafted this amicus brief in support of Petitioners and asking the U.S. Supreme Court to accept certiorari so that it can define the proper scope of Section 230 immunity when social media platforms violate their duties to consumers and the public as manufacturers of online products. Amici argue that social media platforms, like Snapchat, are not entitled to immunity under Section 230 of the CDA for their unreasonably dangerous design features that facilitate sexual exploitation and abuse.
