EPIC Challenge to FAA Failure to Establish Privacy Safeguards Moves Forward

The federal appeals court in Washington, DC has ordered briefing in EPIC's lawsuit against the Federal Aviation Administration. EPIC filed suit in March after the FAA failed to establish privacy rules for commercial drones as mandated by Congress. The EPIC lawsuit followed an earlier petition to the agency backed by more than a hundred organizations and privacy experts. The FAA had asked the D.C. Circuit to dismiss EPIC's lawsuit. But in today's order, the appellate court directed the parties to prepare merits briefing for a three-judge panel which will consider the case.
