Facts[edit | edit source]
"In September 2018, a man from Düsseldorf had obtained a temporary injunction from the Düsseldorf Regional Court, which prohibited the Irish-based company Facebook from blocking the man from posting a specific text on www.facebook.com or from deleting the post. He had this injunction served on Facebook without an English translation. Facebook claimed that the company did not understand the content and needed an English translation."
