A woman who says she was sold for sex as a teenager is suing an Albuquerque motel and the now-closed Backpage website, alleging both businesses had a hand in allowing her to be trafficked.
The lawyers who filed the suit have already filed 20 similar ones in Texas, but this is the first in New Mexico. They say they are attempting to shine a light on the many different ways human trafficking is able to flourish.
And attorney Annie McAdams said her legal team doesn’t intend to agree to a settlement.
