Lawyers Seek Delay in Tracking Suit
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.November 2, 2011
Both sides of a lawsuit over Facebook's alleged tracking of users' online activities are asking for a delay while the Panel on Multidistrict Litigation decides whether the suit should be consolidated with a similar California case, The Associated Press reports. The class-action suit, filed by a Kansas man, is one of several in the U.S. alleging that Facebook--without consent--tracked users' online behavior while they were logged out of the site. The judiciary panel in Miami is expected to hear the request on January 26, the report states.
