The Evolution of Consumer Class Actions Under the California Invasion of Privacy Act
Berkeley Research Group
Data Strategy, Security & Privacy Partners Bill Farley and Ashley Shively will join a Berkeley Research Group webinar discussion of the history of the California Invasion of Privacy Act (CIPA) and its current use in class action litigation. Enacted in 1967, this wiretapping law has become the source of a new wave of consumer privacy class action lawsuits, and well-founded suits under this statute can identify potential damages amounting to tens of millions of dollars. In this webinar, panelists will review classic cases brought under CIPA before examining how technological advancements have led to new kinds of claims, such as those brought against makers of smart speakers and websites that use web-tracking software.
