District Judge Denies Meta, Snapchat’s Transfer to CA Federal Court

Friday June 2, 2023

KJSR is pleased with U.S. District Judge Sarala V. Nagala for the District of Connecticut's ruling last week, denying the social media defendants Meta Platforms and Snap, Inc.'s request to move the case to federal court in California, stating both the plaintiffs and Sharp and Rodriguez are citizens of Connecticut.

KJSR is involved in a lawsuit against Meta and Snap Inc., alleging that the Instagram and Snapchat applications caused their client, a minor plaintiff, to become addicted to their products, which resulted in emotional harm, and ultimately connected her with sexual predators who sexually exploited and abused her.

The parents’ lawsuit against the social media giants was remanded to Connecticut Superior Court last week after the companies failed to persuade the court to transfer the suit to federal court in California.
