Yahoo Inc has been hit with a lawsuit, which was filed on May 9 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, concerning a Yahoo Group where trading of child pornography was occurring.

The suit, which was filed by a minor and his parents, targets Yahoo and the man responsible for the Yahoo Group in question. The family is requesting $10 million in damages. According to Reuters, the suit claims Yahoo was at fault for allowing co-defendant Mark Bates to run the group, named Candyman, where thousands of visitors downloaded these materials.

In 2002, Bates plead guilty to charges that stemmed from his actions with the Yahoo Group. Apparently, pictures of the child who filed the lawsuit were posted on Bates' Yahoo Group.

Spokespeople for Yahoo have stated they have not received notification of the filing and are holding comments at this time.
