Facebook, Snapchat and other social media sites, citing an arsenal of legal defenses, are preparing for a swift dismissal of lawsuits alleging their products intentionally cause addiction and mental health problems in younger users.

Facebook, now called Meta Platforms Inc., provided a glimpse of those defenses in an Aug. 30 filing before the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, which will hear arguments later this month on whether to coordinate about 70 such lawsuits in federal courts.
