The California Attorney General’s office is asking a court to force Facebook to comply with its investigation. Attorney General Xavier Becerra didn’t share many other details at a press conference yesterday.

The court filing reveals that the AG’s office has been investigating the social media giant for 18-months over privacy concerns. They claim Facebook has failed to comply with subpoenas to answer questions and turn over documents. This is the first time the state has admitted an investigation into Facebook is underway. Becerra is asking the San Francisco County Superior Court to require Facebook to comply with its requests for documents.
