Quartz: The family of a man whose killing was posted on Facebook is suing the company. “The family of Robert Godwin Sr., a 74-year-old man whose 2017 murder was posted on Facebook by the man who killed him, is suing the company in a wrongful death lawsuit. The lawsuit alleges that Facebook was negligent, having knowledge about the shooter Steve Stephen’s intentions, and failing to alert law enforcement. It says the company had ‘more than sufficient’ time to prevent Godwin’s death.”
