Why Facebook's Ad Platform shouldn't be fully immunized by Section 230

Amicus Brief in Liapes v. Facebook

Aaron Rieke, Natasha Duarte, and Logan Koepke

Amicus brief

We filed a legal brief in Liapes v. Facebook arguing that Section 230 should not fully immunize Facebook’s Ad Platform from liability under a California antidiscrimination law. We describe how Facebook itself, independently of its advertisers, participates in the targeting and delivery of insurance ads based on gender and age.
