Calif. Attorney General Asks Court to Force Facebook to Disclose Documents

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra asked a state court to force Facebook to turn over key documents it has withheld in connection with an 18-month investigation into its privacy practices. Alleging the social-media giant has “refused” to cooperate with officials, the filing in San Francisco County Superior Court outlines for the first time the extent of Becerra’s concerns that Facebook may have violated state law after two years of damaging privacy scandals that sparked international outcry and record-breaking punishments in the United States.
