Austria’s Supreme Court to rule on whether Facebook privacy lawsuit gets class-action status

Austria’s highest court will rule on whether a case filed against Facebook over its privacy policies could be regarded as a class action lawsuit.

Austrian law student Max Schrems, who launched the case against Facebook over the way it handles personal information in July 2014, has claimed 500 euros ($532) on the behalf of more than 25,000 people who took up his idea and signed up to the lawsuit.
