Victims of child pornography whose images have spread around the internet can now claim damages from anyone who possessed those files, the Supreme Court ruled today, but may not be held liable for as much money as distributors or pornographers. The case was Paroline vs. United States, in which a woman, Amy, sued a Texas man named Doyle Paroline for possessing two images of her being raped when she was 8 and 9 years old.

A federal appeals judge ordered Paroline to pay $3.4 million
