Rose Ring to Speak on Privacy Law at Stanford/MLRC Conference

Munger, Tolles & Olson attorney Rosemarie T. Ring will speak May 16 at the Legal Frontiers in Digital Media conference at Stanford University. The two-day conference is designed for lawyers and Web publishing professionals grappling with emerging legal issues surrounding the distribution of content on digital platforms.

Ms. Ring will moderate a panel on privacy class actions called, “What’s Your Exposure? Understanding Key Issues in Privacy Class Actions,” which will provide an update on recent wins and losses in cases brought in reaction to breaches and data collection controversies. Topics will include: recent decisions on motions to dismiss; class action certification, appeals and settlements; developments in the area of arbitration clauses & class action waivers; and Article III standing with respect to what harm must occur for a privacy breach to give rise to the right to sue.

The conference is a joint effort between the Media Law Resource Center and the Stanford Law School Center for Internet & Society.
