Facebook sued in Australia over Cambridge Analytica scandal

Australia’s privacy regulator has filed a lawsuit against Facebook, accusing it of sharing the personal details of more than 300,000 people with Cambridge Analytica. The suit sought unspecified damages, adding that each breach of privacy law could draw a maximum penalty of A$1.7 million. The fine would amount to A$529 billion if the court awarded the maximum for each instance.
