New York Teen Sues Facebook, Classmates for Alleged Bullying

March 4, 2009

A Long Island teenager is suing Facebook and four former high school classmates for allegedly bullying her in a private forum on the social networking site.

Denise Finkel, now a student at the University of Albany, filed suit in Manhattan for $3 million.

She’s claiming the former Oceanside High School classmates created a password protected Facebook group to — quote — “…hold the plaintiff up to public hatred, ridicule and disgrace.”

A Facebook spokesman says the company sees no merit in the lawsuit and will vigorously fight it.
