And Meta Platforms, the owner of Facebook, said the states erred in seeking to overturn the district court’s decision, and a Meta spokesperson said in a statement, “There are no grounds to overturn this decision in the Court of Appeals.” New York Attorney General Letitia James said that the Facebook site Facebook was bad for consumers. “Time and again, the social media giant has used its market dominance to force small businesses out of business and reduce competition for millions of users,” she said.
The group, made up of 46 states, argued that U.S. District Judge James Boasberg of the District of Columbia erred in ruling that they waited too long to file a lawsuit, argued that states are allowed delays that private prosecutors don’t, and also argued that if the court decides they’ve waited too long, States are allowed to consider that others are not because of their role in protecting the public interest.
Boasberg also dismissed a related FTC complaint against Facebook in June but allowed the agency to reconsider the case. Facebook sold Instagram, which it bought for $1 billion in 2012, and WhatsApp, which it bought for $19 billion in 2014.
The lawsuits come after years of investigations into the four largest US tech giants, as well as lawsuits against Facebook and Alphabet Inc. Google.
