A class action lawsuit filed against the social networking giant combines 21 lawsuits from across the country. Separately, a German official has also expressed concerns about Facebook's privacy approach as well.
The suit, which was filed by law firm Stewarts Law US, combines 21 privacy lawsuits filed against the social network in more than a dozen states into a single legal action. The case stems from accusations made in September 2011 that Facebook tracks user activity even after people have left the site.
According to Stewarts Law, the $15 billion figure was arrived at using statutory damages set by the federal Wiretap Act, which allows for damages of $100 per day per violation for each user, up to a maximum of $10,000. The lawsuit also claims Facebook violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Stored Communications Act, various California statutes and California common law.
"This is not just a damages action, but a groundbreaking digital privacy rights case that could have wide and significant legal and business implications," David Straite, partner at Stewarts Law, said in a statement.
Facebook did not respond to a request from eWEEK for a comment.
