📑 The Cambridge Analytica-Facebook Debacle: A Legal Primer

Bookmarked The Cambridge Analytica-Facebook Debacle: A Legal Primer (Lawfare)
There several laws that might plausibly give rise to legal claims against Facebook, Kogan or Cambridge Analytica. Without more information it is difficult to say which of these, if any, might actually lead to a viable legal claim, but each one merits further study. (I am leaving aside for now the potential claims under British and European law, but those add to this list considerably.)
Andrew Woods provides a list of legal approaches that might be used to prosecute Cambridge Analytica:

  • Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
  • State-level Computer Crime Laws
  • U.S. Common Law Claims (Contract & Tort)
  • Federal Trade Commission Rules
  • U.S. Securities Law

via TL:DR
