Melanie Conroy Strafford CLE Webinar Presenter: Standing Spectrum in Data Breach and Privacy Class Actions

Pierce Atwood class action, litigation, and data privacy partner Melanie Conroy will participate in this webinar that will analyze the spectrum of intangible harms that may confer federal standing in data breach and privacy class actions and how courts decide if the alleged injury is concrete, applying lessons from Webb v. Injured Workers Pharmacy L.L.C. (1st Cir. June 30, 2023).

The panel will review these and other important issues:

  • Are standing and accrual of a cause of action simply two sides of the same coin?
  • Are appellate courts overturning applications of TransUnion v. Ramirez more often?
  • How important to the analysis are the speed and adequacy of the defendant's response to the breach?
  • What is the difference between mitigating damages and ginning up losses?
