California accuses Facebook to ignore subpoenas in the state of Cambridge Analytica investigation

the attorney General of the state of California, Xavier Becerra has accused Facebook to move from “your feet”, in order to documents, the progress of the investigation in Facebook and Cambridge Analytica.

The attorney General said in a court filing on Wednesday that Facebook had provided a “clearly inadequate” answer to two sets of subpoenas for the secret investigation began more than a year ago. “Facebook has been no answer, nine, ten interrogatories, and produced no documents in response to the six-document requirements,” the filing said.

Among the documents the communication by the managers to be searched, as chief executive Mark Zuckerberg and chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg and documentation in relation to the company’s privacy changes.

The filing said the social media giant “issued in compliance with lawful subpoenas and interrogatories” for what the attorney General says, to “serious allegations of illegal business practices of one of the richest companies in the world,” on Facebook.

Becerra is now the question of a force court to Facebook to produce documents.

The now-defunct Cambridge Analytica scratched zig-to help millions of Facebook profiles as part of an effort the Trump of the election campaign to the swing voters, which is the target of choice to decide-based advertising. Facebook banned the Analytics and the voters-data-company of the unauthorized scraping. Facebook was later fined $5 billion from the Federal Trade Commission for the violation of a privacy regulation in 2012 that required the company to engage in better protection of the privacy of the user data.

A Facebook spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.
