Has the Supreme Court’s Resolution of Spokeo Played Out as Expected?

Partner Lee S. Brenner and senior associate Cathy D. Lee co-authored the Bloomberg BNA article “Has the Supreme Court’s Resolution of Spokeo Played Out as Expected?”

The Supreme Court’s decision in Spokeo did not uniformly lead to defendant-friendly decisions as anticipated and various splits of authority concerning standing remain.
