Spokeo Inc. Key Developments
The US Supreme Court to Consider to Nip in the Bud A Class-Action Lawsuit against Spokeo
Nov 2 15
The US Supreme Court will consider whether to nip in the bud a class-action lawsuit against Spokeo, in a case closely watched by Silicon Valley companies facing similar claims. If the court rules for Pasadena, Spokeo and finds a consumer lawsuit cannot proceed when the plaintiff cannot show they are being harmed, it could curtail a recent wave of class-action cases against online companies. Google, Facebook, eBay and Yahoo filed court papers backing Spokeo, a people search Web site. If similar cases are allowed to proceed against other companies, any user of their services who alleges a legal violation based only on a technical violation of a federal statute could pursue a multibillion-dollar statutory damages claim despite the lack of injury. The case gives the conservative-leaning Supreme Court another chance to limit class-action litigation as it has in a series of rulings, including a major 2011 victory for Walmart.
