CCPA lawsuits up 60% since 2020

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which went into effect in 2020, is proving popular with consumers from in- and out-of-state who are exercising rights granted by the law for private right of action. In 2021, there were 145 CCPA cases, a 60% jump from the 91 filed the first year, according to a second year report by the Akin Gump Group. The new report also calls out information on how CCPA harmonizes with pre-existing US health laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) which governs research data, and how court decisions are evolving in that area.
