details quickly became internet sensations. in a form of disclosure he's been a friend for many years. jodi kanter writes in today's "new york times." good morning. >> good morning. >> here's what you right. they're finding unexpected support. they fear such exposure is throwing court proceedings off track. >> it's a really strange thing. these lawsuits are going viral online. now, lawsuits have always technically been public in the issue of transparency but it used to be if you filed a lawsuit, unless you were a really famous person or your lawsuit was wildly unusual, it stayed inside a courthouse's filing cabinet, people's briefcases, it didn't get out. now becausering is filed online and very readily accessible these lawsuits is getting out. a juicy complaint in a lawsuit is quite a read. it reads almost like a magazine story. and some of them are getting
8:23 am
more irreparable that actual magazine stories. but part of the problem is the initial filing is only one side of the story. >> just how much issue is there in these gender-related suits online? >> a lot. i came across one that got 400,000 readers or more which is a sizeable audience. >> there have been questions about gender equality in silicon valley. >> and also throughout society. one of the reasons these things are resonating is people read them and first of all they're often outraged by the allegations and also they're interested in our lives than complex corporate litigation or something like that. one of the victims i talked to rachel cramer said when her lawsuit when online it wasn't intentional but she got a lot of messages from strangers, parly older women who said this happened to me, too, but i never spoke up so i'm glad you filed your lawsuit. >> what's the consequence for
8:24 am
the defendant who's been accused of something like sexual harassment sexual discrimination once this goes viral and so many people read it even though there hasn't been a trial yet. >> it's a really serious fairness question. you can have a lawsuit filed against you. it can go absolutely crazy online. it can leave a huge trail over google. it can basically ruin your expectation. and they can be pretty unsupplying poorted. you don't need to present a lot of concrete evidence to file a lawsuit. the discovery phase of the trial hasn't taken place yet. and so the concern is that these often men in these cases are left in a position of having left them unfairly maligned. >> it becomes this p.r. tool. the question is any talk of sealing some of this information so it doesn't then get out before everything else is out. >> the courts are really reluctant do that because the

ideas that lawsuits should be transparent transparent, it should be in an open forum. >> thank y francisco's bayview will hold a citizens' advisory meeting to this is the morning update. >> good monday morning. we'll take a look at the headlines around the bay area. people in bay view will hold a citizens advisory meeting to discuss the teardown of candlestick park. they are concerned about the dust and all the noise from the demolition that's been going on the last few weeks. some worry that there may be asbestos and other chemicals in the air and are complaining about burning sensation in the throat. the turkeys are not properly buried and they ingest poisonous drugs. and normal operations as

8:34 am
sipdy, good morning. >> good morning. >> you know, its was nice to see that this ask her more campaign has had an impact. for the first time on the carpet i didn't hear the first question, so what are you weighing. >> right. noonld actress is saying that they should. be asked that or it's offensive or superficial. that's what the red carpet is for. but for those to be the only topics to be discussed when you as an actress may have spent years on your part it is pretty demoralizing. >> at the same time it's hollywood. >> it's a great level ler also for women who at this point are still getting paid less. it bridges fashion and beauty contracts with levels the field. >> which patricia arquette addressed pretty emotionally. >> who was your favorite look this year? >> i thought the whole trend of embellished white dresses was absolutely beautiful. with saw it on lupita nyong'o.
8:35 am
it looked incredibly heavy, however, she has the best posture in hollywood. jewelulianne moore had a similar look in that trend. >> the red was a big color. >> red was a big color. you saw da toe ka johnson in that clip talking with her mother and rowsamund pike. these are classic looks. nobody went super funky, super surprising. everything was sort of exquisitely detailed but nothing shocking on the red carpet. >> so gwyneth paltrow had on a pink dress. gayle said it was not her cup of tee. >> really. i liked it. i really liked the dress. >> it was my cup of tea.

this morning incredible diversity of national diversity and a series of pictures. how the uniform can mask the complexity of the men and women who wear it. wyatt andrews is in washington the often up expected portraits. good morning. >> good morning ffrm anyone curious about the lives of veterans once they return home all of these photos contain revelations. they're asked to pose on one
8:44 am
side of the mee but then tell us their personal stories through the reflection. there are 130 photos so far of veterans and tichb duty servicemembers, and they are projecting who they are or what's hide behind the uniform with all of it revealed through the looking glass. what we get to see is unabashed joy and unrelenting pain. there is pride, there is diversity, there are americans free to be whatever. and while the photos are very different, the for matt is the same. on one side of the mirror the veteran is in uniform. on the other is an image the veterans choose themselves. we watch the photographer devin mitchell visit several veterans a home. >> there's nothing better i could do to make this photo more powerful. >> here's the concept. devin takes the photos and makes the mirror image but never suggests what they should be. >> the only way to get the truth
8:45 am
of anyone is to allow them to create what their story is. >> this is their choice 100%. >> your choice of uniform and your choice of who you are. the mere image of every day life, of your past who you see yourself in the future. each photo has its own dichotomy. >> the veterans know these photos will post to instagram. but most are not snapshots, they're messages to other veterans and to us. this veteran lost both legs in afghanistan, but today he has a modeling career. that stare into the mirror is a pep talk to everybodying and not just himself. >> i need to keep going. it will get better. >> this this is the marine in you staring the new you down. >> basically. telling myself notbe a punk. >> one of the clearest messages is the pain of ptsd. some have it written on their
8:46 am
hands. they want us to see the drugs t many medications, the pills they use. marine veteran andrew mclaren said this message -- >> my message sus s 21. i'm not going to be a statistic. >> not to be the 22nd to commit suicide but just before the photo he unleashed pure anguish at how hard it is not to become that number. >> i just -- i want to kill myself every day and the only reason i don't do it is because of my kids. >> devin who watched this from behind tried to comfort mclaren. >> okay, man. it's going to be all right. >> it feels like it was hard to be in that room. >> i felt like he was in a place of need and i wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world except for in that exact very spot so that he could have his outlet. >> you felt like if he needed to let that go, you were happy to be there. >> i needed to be there. those are the places i would want to be. i wouldn't change it for
8:47 am
anything. >> to many vets he says the photo session itself is therapy. >> some veterans feel like their situation is unique. maybe they feel like they're alone, that no one else deals with what they're going through other than them. >> one of the most powerful images is also the smallest. this is 8-year-old rachel hope standing at attention. her parents jennifer and shah mar are still in the navy and have deployed several time bus even when they're gone rachel says, she is serving with them. >> do you feel like you're a part of this too? >> yes sometimes. when something dangerous happens or i watch the news that's dangerous happening, i feel like, well, i'm a part of this. >> in so many photos there is unmistakable celebration, family reunions that no one takes for granted anymore, the pride in having served next to the relief at being home. the portrait is one of transformation from duty to personal freedom which for many was the reason they wore the
8:48 am
uniform all along. devin mitchell meanwhile, is a college student who thought all of this up as a way to bolster his application to grad school. he never imagined or intended this this to be the social media sensation that it's become. norah? >> wyatt, thank you. what a great story and kudos to mitchell. i think so many in the military feel like they're leading two different lives. the lives in the battlefield and at home and these pictures capture who they are. >> the only way to gekt the truth is to allow them to get their great story. that's a quote from devin. >> great story. coming up an oscar winner's acceptance speech has a message for all of us. that's next on "cbs this morning."
