Facecrooks Security shares a current court case where blocked Facebook content was challenged earlier this week


A U.S. court ruled this week that Facebook has the right to block content without any explanation. The ruling was in response to a lawsuit against Facebook from Sikhs For Justice (SFJ), a group that alleged its Facebook page was blocked for religious discriminatory reasons. “Facebook is an American corporation and owes allegiance to U.S. Constitution which promotes and protects free speech content and not accede to threats of foreign governments, but the ruling failed to cover any of the allegations of SFJ,” said SFJ’s legal advisor and attorney Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.   The judge in the case said that Facebook is protected under the Communications Decency Act, which protects interactive service providers from being held responsible for their users’ content. However, there’s little doubt that SFJ will appeal the ruling, so this case could just be getting started.
