Vidal-hall in the supreme court?

Just two short but important pieces of news. First, I can now confirm that Google has applied for permission to appeal to the Supreme Court in respect of the Court of Appeal’s landmark judgment in Vidal-Hall v Google. The SC’s judgment on the application is awaited. Second, it would appear that the case of CG v Facebook which I blogged about earlier this year (see here) is also currently on appeal in Northern Ireland, with a cross-appeal being brought by CG on the question of whether the court erred when it concluded that Facebook fell outside the territorial scope of the DPA 1998. For further news on these important cases, watch this space.
