Facebook Sued in $15B Privacy Lawsuit

A $15 billion class action privacy invasion lawsuit was filed last week against the social media giant Facebook, claiming it tracked the Internet activity of its users.

The privacy invasion lawsuit filed in California state court alleges that Facebook inappropriately tracked its subscribers even after they logged out of the website, according to Bloomberg. The court has consolidated 21 other similar lawsuits.

The complaint states that the U.S. Wiretap Act “provides statutory damages of the greater of $100 per violation per day, up to $10,000, per Facebook user.” The plaintiffs allege that the sites' 800 million users are entitled to a total of $15 billion.
