There are lots of laws establishing immunity for blind redistributors of information, so as not to discourage people from building distribution networks.
Of course, there are also plenty of court cases to resolve the question of whether some is redistributing innocently or deliberately facilitating illicit distribution. So someone operating a CCNx node would want to stay clearly on the innocent side of that.
Incidentally, being sued is not the issue. Being liable is.
