Widow Sues Twitter for Husband's Death by ISIS

Tara Fields spouse, Carl Fields, was one of two American soldiers killed in a terrorist attack in Jordan on November 9. Tara has since submitted a 17-page filing in a lawsuit against Twitter.

The federal lawsuit filed Wednesday charged "For years, Twitter has knowingly permitted the terrorist group ISIS to use its social network as a tool for spreading extremist propaganda, raising funds and attracting new recruits. Without Twitter, the explosive growth of ISIS over the last few years into the most-feared terrorist group in the world would not be possible."

Carl Fields, 46, was killed in an attack in Amman, Jordan at a police training facility. ISIS claimed responsibility for the shooting.

The lawsuit also charged “The murder of her husband Carl by an ISIS operative has caused her severe mental anguish, extreme emotional pain and suffering, and the loss of her husband’s society, companionship, comfort, advice and counsel."

Twitter responded by stating “While we believe the lawsuit is without merit, we are deeply saddened to hear of this family’s terrible loss. We have teams around the world actively investigating reports of rule violations ... partnering with organizations countering extremist content online and working with law enforcement entities when appropriate."
