LOS ANGELES —    Congresswoman Katie Hill has a problem on her hands and that problem is the fact that her lawyers haven’t quite informed her of the obvious yet.  Following yesterday’s damning publication of Hill ‘s private images across much of Britain (including in this very tabloid itself), Hill issued a cease-and-desist letter beginning with The Daily Mail.

In that letter,  Hill ‘s lawyers falsely assert that The Mail (a very prominent British tabloid) can be held liable under California’s revenge porn law.

The letter reads ” You have exposed your publication to grave legal consequences for California has some of the strongest criminal laws in the United States against the secretive generation and distribution of private, sexual images,” the attorneys wrote.

The problem? As a British tabloid (on a .co.uk domain) The Daily Mail isn’t actually in the jurisdiction of California for the revenge porn law to apply here.
