Amicus brief on discrimination and Facebook's Ad Platform

In Opiotennione v. Facebook

Aaron Rieke, Natasha Duarte, and Logan Koepke

Amicus brief

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