Washington DC attorney general wants to hold Mark Zuckerberg personally responsible for Cambridge Analytica scandal

CNBC’s Lauren Feiner reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has officially been named a defendant in the ongoing case arising from the Cambridge Analytica scandal. This case, brought by the DC Attorney General, is the first time Zuckerberg has personally been named in a complaint and means that if he and Facebook are found to have violated the law, Zuckerberg will personally be liable for civil penalties, attorneys fees, and restitution or damages to victims. The fact that Zuckerberg was named in the complaint implies that the DC Attorney General has reason to believe he was deeply involved in Facebook’s operations and the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
