Meta Asks to File Extra Brief in Ninth Circuit Appeal of Simulated Casino Game Ruling

Meta Platforms Inc. wants to file an additional brief in the possible appeal concerning the application of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The proposed brief argues that the court should accept the interlocutory appeal. It also argues the case should be resolved at the earliest stage of litigation to prevent long and costly legal battles. Last month, a judge dismissed the suit against Meta, Apple and Google, but stayed the appeal pending the outcome of an appeal by the Ninth Circuit. The case concerns the sale of gambling chips on social media platforms.

In casino app cases against Apple, Google and Meta, judge queries 9th Circ. on immunity issue

U.S. District Judge Edward Davila is presiding over three big class actions. Consumers allege that Apple, Google and Facebook promote illegal online gambling through social casino apps. Davilla rejected two of the plaintiffs’ theories of liability against the online platforms. He refused to dismiss the third claim. The judge has certified the decision for immediate appeal. Facebook and Apple did not respond to requests for comment. It is unclear whether plaintiffs are trying to blame platforms for their own alleged misconduct or for alleged third parties whose content appears on the platforms, as Davilas' ruling suggests.

They are also claiming claims under many state unfair competition laws, for unjust enrichment, illegal casinos and/or gambling loss laws. However, the ruling is certified for appeal. The case involves controlling questions of law, namely whether the platforms are entitled to immunity for hosting the allegedly unlawful social casinos apps. It is also about sharing big data.
