German court denies mother access to dead daughter’s Facebook data

Berlin court has denied a mother access to her deceased daughter’s Facebook data, ruling German privacy laws outweigh her parental rights.

The mother sued for access to her daughter’s Facebook account after the 15-year-old died after being hit by a subway train in 2012 to try and determine if it was an accident or if she took her own life.

The regional court said on Wednesday that the mother’s wish was understandable, but that granting it would set a dangerous precedent.
