A deeply divided Supreme Court set limits Wednesday to how much monetary compensation child victims of online pornography may reap from those who viewed their images.

The 5-4 decision set aside a $3.4 million judgement awarded to a woman whose pictures of her being raped as a child were widely circulated online.

The court ruled that Doyle Randall Paroline, a Texas man who was prosecuted in the case, does not have to pay that large sum, which is the total amount of damages the victim’s lawyers say she deserved.
