This past May, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its long-anticipated and significant decision in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins. At issue was whether a plaintiff who cannot show any actual harm from an alleged statutory violation nevertheless has standing under Article III of the U.S. Constitution to sue for statutory damages in federal court. The Supreme Court held that, to satisfy the "injury in fact" requirement under Article III, a plaintiff must show that he or she suffered "an invasion of a legally protected interest" that is both "concrete" and "particularized."

The initial effects of Spokeo are now being felt as lower courts begin to interpret Spokeo and apply the Supreme Court's "injury in fact" standard to statutory damages claims under an array of federal statutes. In this webinar, we will discuss the federal district and appellate court decisions that have interpreted Spokeo and the implications of those decisions for class action defense and other defense strategies.
