Judge: Citadel not liable for Internet posting involving Ga. teen

By The Associated Press
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A judge has ruled The Citadel is not liable after a former cadet posted the name and phone number of a Georgia teenager on a pornographic website in 2011.<br /> <br /> The Post and Courier of Charleston reports ( http://bit.ly/TNv5bt ) that Circuit Judge Markley Dennis ruled for the state military college in January. The ruling came to light this week when an amended order was filed in the case.<br /> <br /> The Covington, Georgia, father of his then 17-year-old daughter sued the cadet and the college, claiming the college did not properly monitor and filter cadets' Internet and computer use.<br /> <br /> But the judge ruled the school did not create, author or publish any comments about the teen and is immune from civil liability.
