Ireland’s Supreme Court to rule on Facebook data transfer appeal

The Supreme Court will rule by June 6th on Facebook’s appeal over a High Court decision to refer key issues concerning the validity of European Commission decisions approving European Union-United States data transfer channels to the European Court of Justice (CJEU).

The referral was made by the High Court in proceedings by the Data Protection Commissioner arising from complaints by Austrian lawyer Max Schrems that the transfer of his personal data by Facebook to the US breached his data privacy rights as an EU citizen.
