Facebook, Supreme Court

The Supreme Court is to hear a petition by Ajit Mohan, head of Facebook India challenging summons issued by a Delhi Government panel querying him on the role of the social networking portal in the Delhi Riots.

The Facebook India chief has submitted that the Delhi Assembly's committee does not have the Authority to compel him to appear before it, since the same issue was already before a parliamentary panel.

Mohan is set to argue that there is "no law that empowers a State Legislature, including a committee formed by that Legislature, to take coercive action against any person unless it obstructs or impedes its legislative functions."
