Google has announced it is appealing the CNIL’s recent 150,000-euro fine, IDG News Service reports. A company spokesman confirmed the appeal but declined to comment on the details of the appeal, the report states, while a French newspaper reported Google lodged the appeal “on Monday with the Council of State” seeking “a suspension of the ruling,” the report states. The CNIL fined Google last week “for introducing new privacy policies breaching French data protection laws,” the report states. Meanwhile, the UK High Court ruled Thursday in a case brought by Apple Safari users that “Google can be sued by a group of Britons over an alleged breach of privacy, despite the company being based in the U.S. and claiming that the case was not serious enough to fall under British jurisdiction,” The Telegraph reports.
