Statement from A.G. Schneiderman On Facebook/Cambridge Analytica

New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement:

“Consumers have a right to know how their information is used – and companies like Facebook have a fundamental responsibility to protect their users’ personal information.

“Today, along with Massachusetts Attorney General Healey, we sent a demand letter to Facebook – the first step in our joint investigation to get to the bottom of what happened.

“New Yorkers deserve answers, and if any company or individual violated the law, we will hold them accountable.”
