Solicitor General to Support Consumers in Supreme Court Privacy Case

The Solicitor General will argue in support of consumer privacy in Spokeo v. Robins, a critical case now before the US Supreme Court about the future of federal privacy law. EPIC, and leading technical experts and legal scholars, also filed a brief in support of consumer privacy laws, highlighting the rise of data breaches and identify theft. EPIC urged the Court not to "limit the ability of individuals to seek redress for violations of privacy rights set out by Congress." The Court will hear arguments in Spokeo on November 2, 2015.
