After a former content moderator filed a lawsuit alleging poor working conditions, a Kenyan labour court ruled earlier this month that Meta could be sued in the country. In the appeal, which Reuters obtained on Tuesday, the US company disputed the court’s finding that Kenyan courts had jurisdiction.

Sama, a U.S.-based company with operations in Kenya, handled Meta’s content moderation. Sama announced last month that it would no longer provide Meta’s content moderation services.
