Reuters reports Facebook and Austrian lawyer Max Schrems are finally set to give their arguments to the Court of Justice of the European Union Tuesday in a case regarding the social network's use of standard contractual clauses for personal data transfers. The long-awaited trial will commence after Facebook's attempts to avoid a CJEU hearing through an appeal.

Editor's Note: Jennifer Baker wrote a piece for The Privacy Advisor detailing Schrems' case against Facebook.
