More MySpace Lawsuits

More suits have been filed on behalf of under-age girls who were allegedly assaulted by people they met on MySpace.  MySpace has responded to the string of incidents by making some efforts to improve security, while also noting the importance of personal and parental responsibility.

The plaintiffs include

a 15-year-old girl from Texas who was lured to a meeting, drugged and assaulted in 2006 by an adult MySpace user, who is serving a 10-year sentence in Texas after pleading guilty to sexual assault.

The others are a 15-year-old girl from Pennsylvania, a 14-year-old from upstate New York and two South Carolina sisters, ages 14 and 15.
