On Jan 13th, The Hill reported that Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, the senior adviser to British regulatory body Financial Conduct Authority was filing a lawsuit against Meta, Facebook’s parent company, for exploiting users’ data.
It was learned that Gormsen sued Meta for £2.3 billion ($3.2 billion) on behalf of British Facebook users between 2015 and 2019 in a class action lawsuit. She also accused Facebook of abusing its market dominance to impose unfair terms and conditions on ordinary Birtons and making unreasonable requirements to users to provide personal data if they wanted to access to its platform. Meanwhile, Facebook established a vast database on users by such data collections, which brought billions of dollars to Meta in recent years, Gormsen added.
London’s competition appeal tribunal will hear the case just after an United States judge denied Facebook’s request to throw out a Federal Trade Commission lawsuit alleging the company violating antitrust laws on Tuesday.
