Israeli Man Sues Facebook Over Ban
Haaretz reported Tuesday that an Israeli man has been granted the right to sue Facebook in Israel via the Jerusalem District Court. The case will be heard in California where Facebook headquarters are located.
The complaint was made by Omri Weil after being suspended from using Facebook after creating a page criticizing Education Minister Shai Piron. Weil is demanding that Facebook be prevented from deleting content and blocking users without a given reason or the ability to appeal.
