I. OVERVIEW OF THE LAWSUIT

Backpage was the largest sex trafficking website in the world until it was seized by the U.S. Department of Justice and shut down in 2018. The key to Backpage’s dominance of the sex trafficking market was its relationship with Salesforce. Salesforce is a technology company that provides customizable software and personalized support to help its clients operate their businesses, manage their relationships with their customers, and market themselves to new customers.

Beginning in 2013, Salesforce entered into the first of several lucrative contracts with Backpage. Through providing technology and support to Backpage, Salesforce succeeded in greatly expanding Backpage’s business to become the dominant force in online sex trafficking. The relationship between Backpage and Salesforce endured for years, even while Backpage was under criminal investigation and even after its CEO was arrested on sex crimes charges. Although Salesforce knew that Backpage was engaged in criminal trafficking and knew that its own actions facilitated trafficking on Backpage, Salesforce continued to do business with Backpage until it was shut down.

The venture between Salesforce and Backpage left many trafficking victims in its wake. Plaintiff was one victim. Between early 2014 and mid 2017, Plaintiff was trafficked on Backpage and was repeatedly sold for illegal sex against her will. Plaintiff’s trafficker paid money to Backpage to post explicit ads through which Plaintiff was sold. The trafficking of Plaintiff on Backpage occurred during the contractual relationship between Backpage and Salesforce and was facilitated by the tools and operational support that Salesforce provided to Backpage.

4. Both Texas and federal statutes permit sex trafficking victims like Plaintiff to recover civilly against both sex traffickers and those who benefit financially from facilitating sex trafficking. Plaintiff files this lawsuit to hold Backpage and Salesforce accountable under these anti-trafficking laws.
