In an op-ed for Bloomberg BNA, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips’ Donna Wilson and Brandon Reilly, CIPP/US, write that the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018’s private right of action is likely to remain no matter what future iterations of the law take hold. While California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has already highlighted “serious operational challenges” with CaCPA’s enforcement, Wilson and Reilly write, “consumer attorneys are willing to test businesses even on laws of limited scope and with plentiful safe harbors and defenses,” and there will be no exception with CaCPA. Pointing to the volume of lawsuits filed under California’s Shine-the-Light law, they write, “The lawsuits are coming, rain or shine.” Editor's Note: The IAPP will be hosting a daylong workshop at Privacy. Risk. Security. devoted to understanding CaCPA.
