Quebec magistrate Michel Déziel, J.S.C. recently dismissed a class action lawsuit against Facebook over alleged consumer privacy law violations. “Quebec courts do not have jurisdiction on the litigation,” stated Deziel in his judgement. “All the users of Facebook accepted, while joining the site, to submit all the eventual recourses to the California courts of the district of Santa Clara. Customers are not subject to the direction of the Civil Code of Quebec since their adhesion to the site is free.”
