The Federal Court has given the Australian Information & Privacy Commissioner the go-ahead to serve legal documents on Facebook Incorporated and Facebook Ireland. The Information Commissioner is targeting Facebook over claims that the personal data of more than 300,000 Australians was breached as part of the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Facebook is facing possible fines of over $1 billion under Australian privacy laws; it has already been fined $5 billion by US regulators.
