Fake Facebook profile draws defamation lawsuit

It seems that people can have Internet safety problems without even going online. In Chicago, a woman is suing four other minors for creating a fake Facebook profile of her son, with defamatory material, as well as invasion of privacy. The case bears some resemblance to the notorious Myspace case in 2006 in Missouri. The story is in “Chicago Breaking News”, here.

A photo copy of the actual complaint is here at "Chicago Bar-Tender".

This case will surely draw more attention from the major media outlets.
