Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins. The Court is considering whether Congress may confer standing upon a plaintiff who suffers no concrete harm, and who therefore could not otherwise invoke the jurisdiction of a federal court based on statutory damages. The Plaintiff brought a class action asserting violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act which provides statutory damages of not less than $100 and not more than $1,000 per violation. The decision has the possibility of impacting other statutory claims such as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, and the Video Privacy Protection Act, among others. We believe that the Plaintiff should have standing to sue. More info can be found on the SCOTUS Blog here at the link below:
