Shaun Nichols reports:

The Tor Project has found itself on the receiving end of a lawsuit that claims the privacy software’s developers aided a revenge porn slinger.

An attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) told The Register the allegations against the Tor team are baseless.

In a lawsuit, Shelby Conklin accuses the Tor Project of demonstrating “continued tolerance and endorsement” of PinkMeth, a cruel website that features nude photographs of women posted online without their consent.

Her court documents – filed in Denton County, Texas, seeking $1m in damages – allege the Tor Project was “hired” by PinkMeth’s administrators “for the express purpose of escaping liability.”

Update: Someone finally got a clue, it seems, and Tor is not being sued.  Thanks to Jeanne Price for this link.
