Neuhtah Opiotennione v. Facebook, Inc., 3:19-cv-07185 (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California)

This class action lawsuit was brought on behalf of millions of older persons and women who did not receive ads for various financial services like bank accounts, loans, insurance, and investments.  The lawsuit alleges that Facebook has not taken any action to stop advertisers from excluding older persons and women from getting financial services ads on Facebook, other than in the limited area of credit ads.  Among other relief, the lawsuit seeks to require Facebook to ensure that its services—including ads for financial services opportunities—do not discriminate based on age or gender.
