Court clears social media companies in the Pulse massacre

“ISIS sought retrospective credit and there is nothing in the lawsuit to suggest that ISIS knew about Mr. Mateen or knew in advance of his planned attack on Pulse,” the ruling reads. “Although the lawsuit alleges that ‘ISIS reaches out to potential recruits by maintaining accounts on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube so that individuals around the world can contact it directly,’ the plaintiffs never claim that Mr Mateen was in contact with ISIS before the shooting or that ISIS was involved in the commission, planning or approval of the attack or that ISIS knew about the attack in advance. “
