Masha's Law & Collecting Damages
"Masha's Law" is a law that Congress passed in response to
the case of Masha Elizabeth Allen, a Russian orphan who was adopted in
by a man in the U.S. who used Masha to produce hundreds of pornographic
images. Masha's Law not only calls for tougher federal penalties for
those convicted of producing or circulating child pornography, it also
allows victims to seek damages from those defendants.
Under Masha's Law, victims can seek up to $150,000 from those who:
- Abused them and produced the pornographic media
- Shared (distributed) the media
- Downloaded the media
- Purchased the media
In these cases, it may also be possible to seek damages against parties
who failed to stop or enabled the abusers to create the media. If you
believe that you have a legitimate claim under Masha's law, then our
team at Okabe & Haushalter is ready to hear from you. We are prepared
to examine the details of your case and, if possible, have these offenses
against you and your family rectified before the law.
