Irish Court Approves EPIC as Amicus in Schrems Case

The Irish High Court has accepted EPIC's application to participate in a case about data protection rights and Facebook's contractual clauses. The case follows Max Schrems' complaint to the Irish Data Protection Commissioner after the European Court of Justice's decision to strike down the Safe Harbor arrangement. EPIC will provide the Irish Court, and perhaps also the Court of Justice, expert opinion on U.S. surveillance law. EPIC recently joined a case before the European Court of Human Rights concerning the activities of British and U.S. intelligence organizations. EPIC has appeared as a "friend of the court" in almost 100 cases in the United States concerning emerging privacy and civil liberties issues.
