New Hampshire’s attorney general is suing Meta, the parent company of Facebook, in state superior court, alleging the company is violating the state’s consumer protection law by making products addictive for children.
In a complaint filed in Merrimack Superior Court Tuesday, Attorney General John Formella said Facebook, Instagram, and other Meta products have led to a deterioration of mental health for children in the state and that the company has not been truthful to the public about the harmfulness of the platforms.
Formella is asking the superior court to prevent Meta from engaging in deceptive practices around its products; pay restitution to impacted consumers; and compensate the state in an amount to be determined by the court. The state is demanding a jury trial at superior court.
