Practising Law Institute Features Orrick Analysis on Class Action Waivers in Cyber and Privacy Litigation

1 minute read | July.09.2024

Our complex litigation and dispute resolution team has published a recent chapter for the Practising Law Institute’s 25th annual Institute on Privacy and Cybersecurity Law exploring developments in recent case law on the enforceability of class action waivers.

  • The chapter was authored by former Orrick partner Doug Meal, senior litigation associate Matthew D. LaBrie and managing associate Javier Silva.
  • The latest article updates the team’s chapter on the same topic last year for PLI’s 24th annual Institute on Privacy and Cybersecurity Law.

“This area of the law is likely to evolve rapidly with the ever-increasing volume of putative privacy and cybersecurity class actions rooted in online agreements that include class action waivers,” the authors conclude.

These articles demonstrate the importance of involving class action litigators at the outset of any putative class action and during a security incident response to preserve all rights and defenses and best position a potential class action defendant for early and successful resolution.
