I'm like Creston in wondering why these people aren't suing the bastards who are giving the pictures to these sleaze sites.

Did it say they aren't? The primary lawsuit has 16 defendants, and is specific against the site. They may also be suing the guys that did it, with two issues:
1) It's difficult to prove that it was that specific guy that did it. It could have been a friend he shared it with (which isn't good, but lessened damages), or it could have been that his email was hacked, etc. Harder to prove than to prove it was on a site
2) These sites are businesses with revenues made primarily from the nudity of the people suing. The guys that uploaded it received nothing and probably have nothing to their names, anyway. Not much you'll get out of them, and all it really does is prevent that person from doing it again, whereas taking out a few sites will discourage anyone else from opening such a site. Domestically. Good luck trying to stop the ones that open in Russia
