Denver Revenge Porn Law Attorney

If you’ve been a victim of revenge porn, under Colorado’s revenge porn law you might be entitled to a cash settlement for no less than $10,000.

revenge porn lawRevenge porn law is a relatively new thing in popular culture.  But if you followed the case of ex-revenge porn kingpin, Hunter Moore, then you know that the federal and state governments are cracking down on, not only those persons that post revenge porn, but persons like Moore who facilitate its posting (technically, Moore pleaded guilty to federal hacking, but I suspect the charges were a pretext to shut down his revenge porn website).

States all over the country are also starting to crack down on revenge porn including Colorado which has enacted a couple of its own new laws designed to end revenge porn.

As a Denver personal injury attorney, my job is to hold people that exploit my clients responsible for their actions. Luckily for my clients, Colorado law has made it pretty easy for a Denver personal injury lawyer to pursue a revenge porn lawsuit sue on behalf of victims.

You Don’t Have to be a Victim Anymore.

Whenever someone has betrayed your trust and violated your privacy, it is one of the most embarrassing and undignified experiences you will probably ever go through.  Thanks to Colorado law, you’re no longer the victim.  Now, you can do something about it.  Under Colorado law, you can sue the person who posted the revenge porn and you are entitled to no less than $10,000.00 if your lawsuit succeeds.

Denver personal injury lawyer Jeffry Dougan is here to ensure that not only you get your privacy and dignity back, but that the person who preyed on your trust pays.

What do you have to prove to win under Colorado’s revenge porn law?

In order to succeed in a Colorado revenge porn lawsuit, your Denver personal injury attorney has to show that:

  1. The person who posted the revenge porn is 18-years-old;
  2. That he posted a photograph, video, or other image displaying the private intimate parts of another identified or identifiable person who is at least 18-years-old (NOTE: If the person depicted is under 18, then we’re dealing with much more serious felony sex offense charges);
  3. That the poster posted the image or images using social media, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or any web site;
  4. That he posted the image with the intent to harass the depicted person and inflict serious emotional distress upon the depicted person;
  5. That he did so without the depicted person’s consent or that knew or should have known that the depicted person had a reasonable expectation that the image would remain private; and
  6. That his posting the image of the other person resulted in serious emotional distress to that person.

If you win, you get a minimum of $10,000.00!

If your Denver personal injury attorney is able to prove his case, then the plaintiff wins no less than $10,000 plus attorney fees and costs. That is the minimum (not the maximum) that Colorado law provides.

You can’t sue Facebook or Google under Colorado’s revenge porn law.

Interestingly, Colorado law expressly rules out lawsuits against providers of “interactive computer services,” “information services,” or “telecommunications services.” This essentially means you can’t sue Facebook or Instagram – at least under Colorado law.  For now.

Colorado does not tolerate revenge porn law.

Revenge porn posters beware: the State Legislature has sent a very loud and clear message that Colorado will no longer tolerate revenge porn and that, if you are caught posting it, you will face serious criminal and civil liability.
