Yves Bot, an advocate general for the Court of Justice of the European Union, passed away June 9. He was 71. Bot served the CJEU over the last 13 years, recommending nonbinding opinions on cases for the court to consider. Bot was a lifelong prosecutor in the French justice system prior to his CJEU appointment. His career highlight related to the topic of privacy came in 2015 when he offered an opinion that led to the dismantling of the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor framework, which ultimately led to the creation of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. IAPP Staff Writer Joe Duball gives a summation of Bot's privacy feats while Bot's peers discuss the legacy he leaves.
