Ian Lopez reports:

The District of Columbia is bringing suit against social media giant Facebook Inc. over the company’s “failure” to “honor its promise” to protect the personal data of users.

The 21-page complaint, filed in the D.C. Superior Court, alleges that Facebook’s “lax oversight and enforcement of third-party applications” demonstrates how the company falls short of its commitment to its users, citing the Cambridge Analytica scandal as “just one example.” The issue of third-party app sharing separately arose last week after the company announced that outside companies may have had access to the private photos of nearly 7 million users.
