French court rules Facebook can be sued in France.

A Court of Appeal in Paris has confirmed that Facebook can be sued in France. The case involved French teacher Frederic Durand-Baissas whose account was suspended after sharing a photo of a nude painting which hangs in the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. Rejecting Facebook’s argument that its terms of service state that California has jurisdiction, the French court paved the way for other lawsuits against the company outside US jurisdiction.
