The Role of Article III’s Injury-in-Fact Requirement in Privacy Class Actions – The Unsettled Legacy of TransUnion v. Ramirez

Presenters on this panel included Cooley cyber/data/privacy special counsel Josef Ansorge, as well as Sheppard Mullin partner David Poell. 

The Supreme Court’s decision in TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez held that a statutory violation does not always result in an Article III “injury-in-fact.” This session explored how lower courts have interpreted the injury-in-fact requirement in privacy class actions in a post-TransUnion environment where plaintiffs continue to rely on alleged violations of state and federal statutes as the exclusive basis for standing in federal court.

Recent FTC Actions Under the FTC Health Breach Notification Rule and What It Means for Digital Health Companies

Cooley cyber/data/privacy special counsel Andrew Epstein presented on this panel, alongside co-panelists Barbee Mooneyhan, chief information security and privacy officer at Woebot Health, and Dan Guggenheim, chief legal officer at Innovaccer.

In the post-Roe era, the federal government and state governments continue to focus on consumer digital health privacy. In 2023, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) engaged in at least two enforcement actions under its Health Breach Notification Rule, focusing on the disclosure of sensitive health information to third parties through mobile-tracking technologies. This session explored how the FTC’s actions highlight risks and issues to address in an effort to avoid fines, government-imposed changes to business practices and increased regulatory oversight.
