A private right of action, or the ability of individuals to bring lawsuits for violations of a statute, has been a major point of contention in debates over a potential federal data privacy law. This podcast featuring Andrew Kingman (Mariner Strategies), Jennifer Huddleston (NetChoice), and Keir Lamont (Future of Privacy Forum) will dive into the questions surrounding this debate. Is the litigation risk from a private right of action harmful to innovation and small businesses or is it necessary to redress individual concerns? What can policymakers and practitioners learn from state level privacy laws like Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) and the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) about the impact of a private right of action?
