His experience also includes appeals in the New York State Appellate Division, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the New York Court of Appeals.
In our last post, we discussed the evolving standing landscape in class actions. That discussion highlighted the Third Circuit Court of Appeals’ recent decision in Horizon Healthcare, where the Court held that even without hard evidence that any of the plaintiffs’ personal information was used improperly, the alleged disclosure of information was enough to create a “de facto injury” sufficient to confer standing.
