Key Developments in CCPA Litigation for Q1 2021

As we move deeper into the second year of CCPA litigation, the substantive issues continue to develop and we remain focused on the patterns and implications of recent filings and rulings.  In this post, we highlight notable developments in three cases that occurred in the first quarter of 2021.  These cases raise significant issues regarding judicial interpretation of the private right of action in the CCPA, the definition of a “data breach,” and CCPA plaintiffs’ ability to access pre-complaint discovery. 

As CCPA-related cases progress through the litigation stages, we continue to provide updates.  Our summaries of CCPA-related litigation can be found in our CCPA Litigation Round-ups for:  Q1 2020Q2 2020, and Q3 & Q4 posts.
