Stoll Berne attorney Keith Dubanevich recently named to the Local Rules Advisory Committee for the U.S. District Court, District of Oregon.

The Court states the mission of this committee is “to review amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and recommend amendments to ensure consistency between the federal civil rules and our local rules, and compliance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 83.”

Keith’s terms will run for four years, expiring at the end of 2025.

A class action lawsuit was filed against Meta Platforms Inc., formerly known as Facebook, by Rohingya refugees from Myanmar. The allegation allege the company did not take action in anti-Rohingya hate speech which contributed to violence. The lawsuit claims the posts were tolerated on Facebook which violated the policy of hate speech against ethnic groups. The suit was filed in California and England.
