Laura Loomer Sues Facebook For Alleged Defamation

Laura Loomer
Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch and a former federal prosecutor Monday announced the filing of a defamation lawsuit by Laura Loomer against Facebook.

The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (Case No.  9:19-cv-80893), alleges that Facebook and its wholly owned sister company Instagram, in banning Ms. Loomer from the social media sites, maliciously defamed her by publishing that she is a "dangerous individual" and a domestic Jewish terrorist.

This characterization of Ms. Loomer, published widely, is alleged to have severely damaged her reputation, good will and financial well-being, as well as endangered her life and caused her to have to travel with security. As Facebook is reportedly worth over $63 billion the alleged compensatory and punitive damages are sought for at least over $3 billion U.S. dollars, which is 5% of its net worth – the standard calculation for punitive damages. The reason punitive damages are assessed by a jury to punish the offender to dissuade further illegal conduct.

Loomer has been a strong advocate not just for conservative causes, but also to stem the growing anti-Semitism in Congress and threat of Islamic terrorism. In this regard, she was banned by Facebook and Instagram by simply revealing the truth. Facebook and its CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg is a self-hating leftist Jew sympathetic of Islamic extremism. Klayman sued Zuckerberg and Facebook years ago for allegedly furthering a Palestinian Infitada calling for and which resulted in the death of Jews.
