Should I Have Been Paid? Facebook Faces Class Claim From UK Users

February 14, 2022

London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the February 14 episode of the ABA’s Our Curious Amalgam podcast on the topic “Should I Have Been Paid? Facebook Faces Class Claim From UK Users.”

Facebook is the leading social network in the UK, as elsewhere. But has it unfairly treated its UK users? Dr. Liza Lovdahl Gormsen, competition law academic and practitioner, joins Matthew Hall and John Roberti to discuss her class action claim in the UK which seeks multi-billion pound damages from Facebook/Meta. Listen to this episode to learn more about the history and basis of the claim, what is alleged, how it is funded, and what it is like to be a class representative.

Our Curious Amalgam explores topics in antitrust, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and privacy law around the world with leading experts in those areas. It is an amalgam because it is a group of diverse topics all in one place. It is curious because it gets the experts and asks them in-depth questions.
