MediaPost reports the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied LinkedIn's challenge of a prior decision to allow hiQ Labs to collect personal data from LinkedIn's public pages. A court order explained judges did not request a vote to provide LinkedIn with a new hearing, which can now only occur with intervention from the U.S. Supreme Court. The appellate judges wrote in their decision that there is "no evidence" suggesting LinkedIn's "Do Not Broadcast" option was deployed as a user privacy tool against unauthorized data scraping. Editor's Note: IAPP General Counsel and Data Protection Officer Rita Heimes, CIPP/E, CIPP/US, CIPM, wrote about the initial ruling in this piece for Privacy Tracker.
