French MEP files legal challenge to EU-US Data Privacy Framework

08/09/2023 | Politico

On Friday, 8 September,  French lawmaker Philippe Latombe announced that he is challenging a new EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF) before the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). The move could lead to years of legal wrangling less than two months after the adequacy decision was published in the EU Official Journal.

Latombe argues that the deal violates the Union's Charter of Fundamental Rights and the General Data Protection Regulation due to insufficient guarantees of respect for private and family life concerning bulk collection of personal data. He filed two challenges, one to suspend the agreement immediately and another on the text's content.
