Privacy Group Files Legal Challenge to Facebook’s $5 Billion FTC Settlement

The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) says the deal would unfairly dismiss thousands of complaints against the tech giant.

EPIC requested a hearing where the court could review the fairness of the Facebook agreement and consider consumer groups’ complaints. If the court decides to grant such a hearing, a judge could require the trade commission to review outstanding consumer complaints and alter the terms of the proposed settlement.
