“Calif. Privacy Law Will Likely Prompt Flood Of Class Actions”

A Sidley Austin law firm partner writes that the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has “has potentially far-reaching implications for class action litigation and will not go unnoticed by the plaintiffs’ bar.”

Alexis Buese said businesses must “remain vigilant in preparing for the likely tide of litigation that will stem from the enactment of the CCPA” on January 1, 2020. She says the law’s private right of action may “provide incentive for plaintiffs to bring class action litigation” since statutory damages are now available in cases involving data breaches. Existing California case law, she adds, may help plaintiffs’ attorneys expand class action lawsuits beyond the breach provision.
