USA: Israeli spyware firm NSO accuses Facebook of not following proper legal procedure in lawsuit against them for undue mass surveillance

"The Israeli spyware firm accused of hacking WhatsApp is now claiming Facebook disregarded international law as the legal battle between the 2 companies heats up," 10 March 2020

Facebook is suing NSO Group for allegedly exploiting WhatsApp in order to carry out mass surveillance.

The legal battle between Facebook and the Israeli spyware firm NSO Group is heating up, with the company accusing Facebook of lying to the court in a new filing...

...Facebook won a default ruling against the company last week, when NSO Group representatives didn't show up to court in San Francisco.

NSO Group now claims that Facebook didn't properly serve it with the lawsuit in accordance with international law, and says Facebook lied in the process.

Facebook responded to NSO Group's filing, saying that the Israeli company was properly served.
