Submission + - My Space Sued For Sexual Assualts

JoeSchmoe999 writes: "MySpace has been sued by four families who claim the popular online social network failed to do enough to help prevent adult members from contacting and later sexually assaulting their daughters. Four of the five girls — two were sisters — were given alcohol, drugs, or both; and one was also kidnapped."

Anyone got any ideas on how to verify ages of people through the Internet? This lawyer, Adam J. Loewy, the man behind the suit, seems to think that there should be and that MySpace should have it.
