California’s attorney general has gone to court to force Facebook to hand over documents as part of an investigation into the company.

Xavier Becerra filed a “petition to enforce investigative subpoena” with the Superior Court of California in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, arguing that Facebook’s response to his subpoenas has been “patently inadequate.”

FB's on-going struggle with politicians continues to heat up. Where will it end?

Will any of this affect how webmasters rely on Social Media for business?

a “petition to enforce investigative subpoena”

not "again", "still".
hardly newsworthy...

Okay ... but does remain a second fire upping the ante (note : "again" in the subject line) is worth a notice. A comment "this" is not going away ... and might actually hit a target in the future. :)

Other chuckle is the source of complaint, but that's a different story.
