Facebook Tells Judge It Takes Terroristic Threats Seriously

Smooth move Facebook. Nothing like pissing off a U.S. District Court Judge by sending a junior lawyer to address the courts about a lawsuit filed by the victims of attacks they claim were incited by terrorists using Facebook as a platform. I'll bet they won't make that mistake again. eek!

Lawyers for Facebook Inc on Tuesday sought to assure a U.S. judge overseeing lawsuits by victims of militant attacks in the Middle East that it took a "zero tolerance" approach to any communications that may promote terrorist threats or activity. The comments came after U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn on Thursday accused Facebook's law firm of insulting the court by sending just a junior attorney to address him in lawsuits implicating violent attacks on Israelis.
