DUBLIN (Reuters) – The Irish High Court will decide on Friday whether the country’s data regulator should issue an interim order to halt the transmission of Facebook (NASDAQ 🙂 user data from the European Union to the US.

The Irish Data Protection Commission, the EU’s leading regulator for Facebook, issued the ruling last August after the European Supreme Court ruled that a transatlantic data transmission framework known as the Privacy Shield is invalid.

Facebook called for a judicial review of the commission’s decision, saying it threatened “devastating” and “irreversible” consequences for its business.

The Irish High Court temporarily frozen the order last September to allow the review to continue.
