Laura Loomer Files $3 BILLION Lawsuit Against Facebook for Defamation

Over $3 Billion Sought for Actual and Punitive Damages

(Palm Beach, Florida, July 9, 2019).

On Tuesday, Larry Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch and a former federal prosecutor announced the filing of a defamation lawsuit by conservative investigative journalist Laura Loomer against Facebook. The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (Case No. 9:19-cv-80893), alleges that Facebook and its wholly owned sister company Instagram, in banning Ms. Loomer from the social media sites, maliciously defamed her by publishing that she is a “dangerous individual” and a domestic Jewish terrorist.

On May 2, 2019, Facebook banned Loomer from Facebook and Instagram. At the time of the ban, Loomer had nearly 100,000 followers on Facebook, and over 120,000 on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

The banning of Loomer, along with several other high profile conservatives sparked international outrage, as users wondered how Facebook could claim that Loomer and others were more “dangerous” than terrorist groups like ANTIFA and ISIS, which have accounts on Facebook and Instagram.

This characterization of Ms. Loomer, published widely, is alleged to have severely damaged her reputation, good will and financial well-being, as well as endangered her life and caused her to have to travel with security. As Facebook is reportedly worth over $63 billion the alleged compensatory and punitive damages are sought for at least over $3 billion U.S. dollars, which is 5% of its net worth — the standard calculation for punitive damages. The reason punitive damages are assessed by a jury is to punish the offender to dissuade further illegal conduct.

Loomer has been a strong advocate not just for conservative causes, but also to stem the growing anti-Semitism in Congress and threat of Islamic terrorism. In this regard, she was banned by Facebook and Instagram by simply revealing the truth. Facebook and its CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg is a self-hating leftist Jew sympathetic of Islamic extremism. Klayman sued Zuckerberg and Facebook years ago for allegedly furthering a Palestinian Intifada, which resulted in the death of Jews.

Klayman had this to say upon filing suit for Ms. Loomer:

“Laura Loomer is an American heroine, who puts principle ahead of her own safety and well being. By calling Ms. Loomer dangerous and banning her from Facebook and its related wholly owned and controlled entity Instagram, the companies have not only maliciously defamed her but in effect issued another Intifada to harm her for criticism of Reps. Omar and Tlaib and their blatant anti-Semitism. This will not stand and Facebook will be made to pay dearly for its actions.”

In April, Loomer sued Twitter and CAIR for their role in deplatforming her. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Loomer’s ban came at the instigation of CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), a designated Islamic terrorist organization, and was carried out shortly after CAIR’s meeting with Twitter and Facebook executives.

As of date, Loomer has been been banned on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Periscope, PayPal, Venmo, GoFundMe, Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, Medium, and TeeSpring.


In February, Chase Bank temporarily suspended access to her online banking and canceled her debit card.

Loomer holds the title of “Most banned woman in the world”.

  1. God bless you, Laura Loomer. Stay strong and know that we are with you.

    We can all see the beginnings of efforts to establish a socialist state in America. Part of that effort is to silence dissent or objections.

  2. Get’em Danno. Censorship is as un-American as it gets! Today’s book burners are digital censors. I won’t live in that America without a fight.

  3. Social media, the giant world-wide private companies, have joined the movement toward communism by implementing the major element of totalitarian regime-censorship against political party that stands for freedom. In other words, social media works against human rights which is criminal abuse – mental torture. No matter whether it is private company or some individual, the persecution of innocent people is being committed. Justice Department is needed before the dictators make a step forward to physical torture, as it happened many times before.

  4. Facebook is worth a lot more than $63 billion. The value of it’s stock (market cap) is $568 billion. So this lawsuit is less than 1% of it’s net worth, not 5%.

  5. Democrats are lying sociopaths ally with biggest Supremacist ‪brainwash to hate America patriots for POWER. They destroy america history values easier conquer. 1400yrs invasions – Supremacist
    Special gallery. Only way stop evil Supremacist is expose them as Supremacist. Share truth. Obama Supremacist infiltrate Democrats and Media and is why so much hate on trump with Soros help. Flip it on Left – Democrats ally with Supremacist‬

  6. I so hope you Crush them, are you going to D.C. Thursday? Your amazing and need to tell your story to our President. This censorship is sick. Keep your head high, always praying for victory and justice, but sometimes justice won’t be served in this life but the next one, for sure.

  7. You have a CASE!! It will become legal prescedent for others to go after the Leftist media. Let’s see, a baker can lose a baking business for refusing to make a wedding cake, but when you Laura report irrefutable facts the LEFT MEDIA tries to silence you, thereby spitting on the First Amendment/Constitution. God Speed on forcing the digital giants to pay dearly. Seems a high percentage of Judges, even liberal Judges, know how this case boils down to right from wrong and applied bias. All terrorist sites must be dropped. Mark

  8. The Butterfly Effect: In this case it’s Ms. Laura Loomer representing the butterfly as the power to cause a hurricane at Facebook to a butterfly flapping its wings in New Mexico.

    I like the fact that Ms., Laura Loomer is flapping her wings of discontent and causing some powerful winds of regret at Facebook. We all know too well of the abuses that have gone on unchecked. There’s many more out there that have been censored and run out of town on a rail that will be following in suite with what she’s doing. It’s the perfect storm for paybacks against the dark and sinister big leftists who have been destroying the lives of many great people, people who are good Americans that care about what’s right, know what’s wrong and who’ve had enough. I’ll be praying for success for Laura Loomer and all that follow

  9. I learned of Ms. Loomer, when in her activism, she took 10 “Illegal Aliens to Pelosi’s Napa Valley property” to show the hypocrisy of Pelosi ‘wanting to have Open Borders for Illegal Alien’s Invasion of America’…..well in Corrupt Democrat actions, Pelosi called authorities and had the Illegals Arrested, Fined AND Removed from HER precious property. I thought Hooray for Ms. Loomer exposing the hypocrisy of Pelosi and others who want THEIR property to be protected(walls included) but NOT OUR HOMES and Neighborhoods here in California.

    I know that Democrats Always have “Double Standards” when it comes to what They want, but do NOT think we should have the Same Rights, as they dictate to American Citizens how to live, etc. Thank you Ms. Loomer for exposing Pelosi and the work you do. Good luck with your lawsuit against the “SuckUpBerger, to Obama, in their quest for a “One World Order” and to hell with our Republic, Our Constitution that protects American Citizens.

  10. Large on-line sites require independent monitoring by a non-affiliated rotating source, both for the good of on-line sites and their audiences. This is required by an ‘Arms Length’ law that is applicable to all entities, both public and private enterprises. Ideally, the site should have no input in the monitoring process. This will free large sites from such obligations and allow them to conduct what are excellent communication provisions for humanity.

  11. I hope you win! I’ve been shadow banned by facebook for more than 3 years and no one listens. I hope they hear you, they’ve ruined me.

  12. Way overdue.
    These PUBLICLY TRADED Corporations are violating OUR Constitutional Rights and their Boards of Directors should be Criminally Prosecuted.
    They advertize themselves as SOCIAL MEDIA and then violate Your Civil RIght of Free .Speech
    FACEBOOK, TWITTER, YOUTUBE, REDDIT, GOOGLE are PLACES OF PUBLIC GATHERING, “SOCIAL Media”, and ADVERTISE themselves as PUBLIC places.. They are also PUBLICLY TRADED CORPORATIONS, listed on the New york Stock exchange. File complaints with the SEC, and every “Human Rights” agency. File complaints with the NYSE for Bigotry and Discrimination.
    FACEBOOK is a PUBLIC SPACE therefore it has no right or legal option to censor participants. FACEBOOK is a PUBLICLY TRADED company, NOT a “private entity” and it solicits PUBLIC memberships.
    the FCC removed the telecommunication companies from the Net Neutrality laws and they are to be treated as Internet companies, rather than like regulated phone service companies.So as with ALL companies they cannot DISCRIMINATE.
    They advertise themselves as “Social Media & Public Spaces” so everything that is covered under the First Amendment can be posted there. ….. these “Social Media” can & should also be sued for violating People’s 1st Amendment RIGHTS to speak freely in PUBLIC SPACES.
    giant tech firms that are publically traded that take government subsidies are not private. They should have to follow the same rules that all government contractors have to follow.
    Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc. engaging in politically motivated censorship is like your meter reader shutting off your electricity because you have a Trump sign on your lawn. These social media have become like public utilities and therefore have no right to engage in political censorship. It is way past time to impose common carrier status on social media. Just like the phone company cannot censor your conversations there, social media should not be allowed to interfere with content there. Social media is the modern day phone company.
    “It is way past time to impose common carrier status on social media.”
    Meanwhile, Ajit Pai of the FCC has disallowed common carrier status for ISPs and, moreover, has allowed them to censor content, block websites, raise prices for everyone, and wage class war by using an excellent standard of speed and service for the rich and an inferior one (slow speed and service) for the non-rich.
    “Social media is the modern day phone company.” – and also a potent means of grassroots organization. By censoring one side they are DENYING the CIVIL RIGHT to organize and associate.
    They are violating YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS by denying you the means of communication.

  13. This just proves that the left are the true fascists in this country. They have banned Candice Owens, James Woods, among others, and now her. What are they so afraid of? How sad and pathetic that they won’t allow freedom, yet they will allow a terrorist group like ANTIFA to have their voice heard. I would love to have something like facebook but for conservatives.

  14. This co-operation of Revolutionaries & Street Thugs, Big Corpa, Big Media, and Big Gov is actually what fascism looks like. Like their Dem heroes all around, it’s a clever maneuver to accuse others of what they’re actually doing.
