Facebook's oversight board to decide if Trump should stay suspended

(Reuters) - Facebook Inc said on Thursday it was referring its decision to indefinitely suspend the accounts of former U.S. President Donald Trump to its independent oversight board.

Trump will remain suspended while the board, a recently created body that can overrule the company's decisions on content, reviews the decision. The board, which said it had accepted the case, will have a maximum of 90 days to make a ruling and for Facebook to act on it.


So just wondering, do these Overseers get to wear wigs and robes? Do they have titles? Do they have a special hall in which they meet? Are their deliberations public? In truth, Facebook looks a lot like an independent agency here.
