New report on CCPA private right of action filings

A new report looks at case filings involving the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) private right of action provision, which is used when a business is deemed to have failed to implement security practices to sufficiently protect personal information from disclosure or theft. As of March, less than a year after the law began to be enforced, 83 actions had been filed, more than half of which were against the same 11 defendants. 83% of those filed were data breach claims, and 61% of cases filed unfair competition law (UCL), which is meant to protect against fraud and deceit.
