Supreme Court to Address Standing to Sue for Data Breaches and Privacy Violations
by George H. Pike
The ability of individuals to seek legal recovery for data breaches or the posting of inaccurate information or to defend their privacy rights may soon be impacted by the Supreme Court of the United States. It has agreed to consider whether a person can sue for the posting of incorrect information--in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)--in the absence of proof that the person was specifically harmed by the incorrect information. The court will explore whether the absence of specific harm means that the person does not have "standing" to file a lawsuit, even though the poster of the information clearly violated the FCRA.
