The General Court of the European Union will hear a complaint about the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield agreement July 1 and 2, TechCrunch reports. The complaint was brought forth by French digital rights group La Quadrature du Net. The group filed its complaint back in October 2016, when it alleged Privacy Shield violates the fundamental rights of EU citizens and does not properly protect personal information. "A decision on the legality of Privacy Shield will follow some time after July," the report states, "perhaps in just a handful of months, as the [Court of Justice of the EU] has been known to move quickly in cases involving the defence of fundamental EU rights. Though it may also take the court longer to issue a judgement."
