Supreme Court to rule on Facebook privacy case today!
A Nova Scotia teenager who wants to sue the people she alleges bullied her on Facebook will find out Thursday whether she’ll get to keep her name and details of the case private.
The Supreme Court of Canada is set to rule on what’s called the “open court principle,” the right of the public to understand what's happening in the courts and to scrutinize its judgements.
At stake is whether the teen’s desire to keep her identity and the details of what was allegedly said about her private should override the public’s right to an open court.
