Facebook is ordered to hand over data about thousands of apps that may have violated user privacy

Facebook ordered to turn over apps

A Massachusetts judge has ordered Facebook to turn over data about thousands of apps that may have mishandled its users’ personal information, rejecting the tech giant’s earlier attempts to withhold the key details from state investigators.

The decision amounted to a significant early victory for Maura Healey, the Democratic attorney general of Massachusetts, who said in a statement Friday that Facebook users — and local watchdogs — “have a right to know” whether the company broke the law and violated people’s privacy.

Facebook, however, signaled the fight may not be over, marking its latest effort to battle back state regulators who have intensified their scrutiny of the tech giant.

Honolulu shooting

Two police officers were killed in the line of duty on Sunday in Honolulu, Hawaii Gov. David Ige said on Twitter, following a string of events that allegedly began with an attempted eviction.

Hawaii News Now, citing police sources, reported the man first stabbed his landlord after she tried to evict him, then fired at responding police officers and set fire to the home.

“As we express our condolences to their families, friends and colleagues, let us also come together to help and support those who have been forever changed by this tragedy,” Ige said.

14 states sue Trump over food stamps

A coalition that includes attorneys general in 14 states, the District of Columbia and New York City are suing the Agriculture Department over a plan to impose stricter work requirements on millions of food stamp recipients.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday by mostly Democratic-led states, argues that USDA unlawfully limited states' discretion to exempt certain adults from work requirements for an extended period of time based on local employment conditions.

"Under well-settled law, the executive branch does not get to go forth with policies that Congress specifically rejected," District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine said in a call with reporters. He and New York State Attorney General Tish James are leading the lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The FBI arrested three members of a neo-Nazi group called “The Base” on Thursday morning, days ahead of a pro-gun rally in Richmond that is attracting fringe figures and has already prompted a state of emergency declaration.

The three suspects—Brian Mark Lemley, William Garfield Bilbrough, and Canadian fugitive Patrik Mathews—face a variety of gun charges. Lemley and Bilbrough are also accused of illegally harboring Mathews, a former Canadian military reservist who fled his home country after being accused of being a recruiter for The Base. The trio is expected to face a federal judge in Maryland on Thursday afternoon.
