French court upholds 100m euro fine against Google

France’s Conseil d’Etat, the country’s supreme administrative court, on Friday says it upheld a decision by a watchdog imposing a 100 million euro ($111.46 million) fine on the U.S. tech giant for breaches linked to its cookies policy.

According to Reuters, the fine imposed by France’s CNIL data protection authority was proportionate, the court said in a statement.

“The Conseil d’Etat, therefore, rejects Google’s demand to annul the sanction”, it noted.
