Attorneys Ask If California’s New Privacy Law Will Become “The New TCPA”

Attorneys with the Squire Patton Boggs law firm say the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) “is likely to create a wave of litigation and class action” similar to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

Citing a blog by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, they say TCPA lawsuits increased 1,272 percent from 2010 to 2016. Given the “several common threads underlying the CCPA and the TCPA,” they say the impending data-related lawsuit filings “will likely follow a framework similar to early TCPA litigation.” Ambiguities and undefined terms in the CCPA will leave plaintiffs and their attorneys “free to make creative arguments and requiring courts to define statutory terms as new cases arise.”
