Zuckerberg, Sandberg set to be deposed in Cambridge Analytica lawsuit

WASHINGTON: Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta and its COO Sheryl Sandberg called to be deposed in a Cambridge Analytica lawsuit, the media reported.

According to a court document, the deposition may go up to around six hours for Zuckerberg while Sandberg could face up to five hours of questioning.

After 14 years in the company, Sandberg is stepping down from her key role as the company's second-highest ranking executive and the person who will replace her as Meta COO will also need to be present at the hearing.

"The lawsuit, which could wind up as a class action case if a judge agrees to it, alleges that Facebook illegally shared user data with third parties and didn't adequately protect that data from being abused by bad actors," the report said late on Friday.

The depositions are set to happen sometime before September 20. The deposition comes as part of a lawsuit filed in a California court on behalf of Facebook users impacted by Meta's partnership with Cambridge Analytica.

Facebook gained access to the private data of 67 million Facebook users, which was used to profile voters. In another case, amid claims that Sandberg misused company resources, Meta lawyers are investigating the outgoing COO.

The investigation goes back "several years" and is scrutinising Meta employees' work on Sandberg's projects, and reports.

When Sandberg first announced her departure from the company, the WSJ reported that the company was investigating whether company resources were misused in planning her upcoming wedding.

Meta Lawyers are reportedly looking into the involvement of Sandberg's Facebook staff in her foundation Lean In, and their work promoting her latest book, "Option B."
