Porn site to pay $12.7m to women who not aware of videos would be posted online

A US judge has awarded $12.8m (£9.8m) to 22 unnamed women, ruling that they were tricked into appearing in widely distributed online porn videos.

Some of the models duped by the owners and operators of the GirlsDoPorn website had become suicidal, he said.

They were told the videos were for a private collector or overseas DVDs, according to the 181-page judgement.

The women – aged 18-23 when they shot the videos – were also assured the videos would never appear online.
