Parents suing Facebook over purchases made by kids

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Parents are suing Facebook over online purchases made by kids.

A judge ruled this week that a class action lawsuit can go forward. Hundreds of thousands of people could become part of the suit.

Critics say the social media giant is refusing to refund parents when their children use credit or debit cards without parental permission. According to the suit, the purchases revolve around Facebook virtual currency.

Facebook officials say the lawsuit is without merit.
