Facebook on Friday was sued over its user of tracking cookies, with those who filed the suit accusing the social-networking site of violating federal wiretap and electronic communications laws, among other things.
The suit, filed in California district court by six Facebook users in Illinois, Hawaii, Virginia, and New Jersey, asks the court for damages, as well as an order that would require Facebook to stop installing cookies that track users after they log out.
