EU and US Deal on Data Protection?

EU USA

The EU and U.S. have reached an agreement that would protect personal data used for law enforcement purposes, Reuters reports. However, though the text has been finalized, the European Commission has said it will not be signed until the U.S. passes legislation giving EU citizens the right to judicial redress in the U.S. Meanwhile, Europe's Advocate General is expected to issue a long-awaited legal opinion on Facebook's sharing of personal information with the National Security Agency under the agency's PRISM program. The opinion, which is non-binding but influences the 15 judges on the European Court of Justice, will likely affect the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor Agreement. The opinion's expected delivery date is now 23 September.
