A woman, identified as "Jane Doe" in court records, has obtained a $6.45 million judgment in federal court against a former boyfriend, David K. Elam II, for accusations that Elam posted intimate photos of her as "revenge porn" online. Revenge porn is online harassment that occurs when former lovers or hackers post sexually explicit images of people online without their permission. In this case, the court found that Elam was liable for the injuries caused by his "systematic revenge porn campaign" and ordered him to pay damages to Doe.
On May 7, 2013, the surviving family of five-year-old Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento settled its lawsuit against teenage driver, Carly Rousso. The young driver who turned 19 last week was accused of losing control of her vehicle and striking the Santos-Sacramento family after inhaling, or "huffing", the fumes of a computer cleaning product. According to authorities, Rousso's vehicle swerved across several lanes of downtown Chicago traffic before it jumped onto a busy sidewalk and ran over a woman and her three children. A canister of the cleaning product was found inside Rousso's vehicle upon being searched at the scene.
