Conspiracy

  1. Introduction

    If a sexual photo or video is published online, it may have been published by several people, rather than just one. Moreover, although one person does the actual posting of an image, several other individuals may be making comments or taking actions that intensify the situation. For instance, although one person posts an image, another co-conspirator may add sound. In such cases, a plaintiff could try to make out a claim of conspiracy along with its other allegations.

  2. Elements

    1) An agreement between two or more parties;

    2) To do an unlawful act or do a lawful act by unlawful means;

    3) The doing of some overt act in pursuance of the conspiracy; and

    4) Damage to plaintiff as a result of the acts done under the conspiracy.1

  3. Cases

    Research is ongoing.
