Denise Finkel, University of Albany Student Suing Facebook For $3 Million

Posted Mar 4, 2009

Denise Finkel has decided to sue Facebook for $3 million because four of her ex-classmates at Oceanside High School set up a group “calculated to hold the plaintiff up to public hatred, ridicule, and disgrace,” on the social network.  The group was password-protected and claimed that Finkel had AIDs, was an avid drug user, and had “inappropriate conduct with animals.”

Finkel is also sueing her former classmates.  “She had a very difficult time in high school. (The classmates) were making sure that she was an unwanted soul there,” stated Mark Altschul, Finkel’s attorney.
