Without reconciliation and stay, they will be deposed by September 20.

Now, Zuckerberg only needs to answer Joe Rogan’s questions and talk about the new VR headset without having to swear in front of opposing lawyers about the details of what happened inside the company around the 2016 election.
The lawsuit accuses Facebook of illegally sharing user data with third parties and says the company does not adequately protect that data from misuse by bad actors. Zuckerberg faced questions from Congress in 2018 that did little to clear up the scandal or explain exactly what happened to Cambridge Analytica, a company hired by Trump’s presidential campaign that could get millions from Facebook.
