District of Columbia Attorney General Karl Racine's case against Facebook is set to proceed after the social network's second bid to dismiss the case was denied, CNET reports. The original lawsuit alleged that Facebook failed to safeguard the personal data of its users, resulting in the Cambridge Analytica data breach of the personal information belonging to 87 million users. "For the 2nd time, the court has denied Facebook’s attempt to stop our lawsuit that seeks to hold the company accountable for not protecting the personal data of nearly half of DC residents," Racine said in a tweet announcing the decision. "We look forward to discovery and continuing our case to protect consumers."
