Lawsuit seeks to punish, expose people who view child porn

AndersonA Minnesota lawyer has filed a civil lawsuit against a man who allegedly made child pornography of a 9-year-old girl -- and 100 unnamed people who viewed those images on the Internet.

This kind of lawsuit is new territory, though, and could be hard to win, Minnesota Public Radio reports. Anderson says they're just as interested as exposing people involved in these crimes.

"If you download photographs that exploit children, we will track you down, we will publicly identify you to your friends and family, and we will sue you."
