Law360 Quotes Associate Crystal N. Skelton on the FTC’s Children’s Privacy Actions
March 28, 2014

Associate Crystal N. Skelton was quoted in the Law360 article "FTC Makes Room For States In Children's Privacy Landscape." The article discusses how the Federal Trade Commission recently told the Ninth Circuit that a district judge was incorrect in suggesting that federal children's online privacy protections trump similar state laws, a position that attorneys say provides a significant boost to states' already aggressive push to craft more-stringent privacy protections for both children and teens. Ms. Skelton explained "The agency has declined to advocate for a congressional change to the statutory definition of 'child,' [but] this does not mean that federal and state legislators won't try to find other ways to provide protections to children and teens online."
