Privacy Class Actions Post-Spokeo: Leveraging Injury-In-Fact Requirements
Establishing or Refuting Concrete and Particularized Injury
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will prepare class counsel to leverage the injury-in-fact requirements for Article III standing in privacy class actions in light of the recent Supreme Court opinion in Spokeo v. Robins and will outline strategies for class counsel to argue for or against whether injuries in privacy actions are concrete and particularized.
- Injury-in-fact post-Spokeo
- Tangible vs. intangible injury under Spokeo
- Violations of statutes which provide for private causes of action after Spokeo
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What must a privacy class action plaintiff allege to establish Article III standing post-Spokeo?
- Can intangible privacy injuries constitute injury-in-fact?
- Are fears that data could be used to harm individual privacy interests sufficient to establish injury-in-fact?
- Can procedural harms satisfy the Spokeo requirements?
