Facebook lawyer says users 'have no expectation of privacy'

According to Law360, Facebook attorney Orin Snyder made the comment while defending the company against a class-action lawsuit over the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

"There is no invasion of privacy at all, because there is no privacy," Snyder said.

In an attempt to have the lawsuit thrown out, Snyder further claimed that Facebook was nothing more than a "digital town square" where users voluntarily give up their private information.

"You have to closely guard something to have a reasonable expectation of privacy," Snyder added.

Although Snyder said that the social media site would be focusing more on privacy in the future, U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria reportedly pushed back on Facebook's argument.
