FTC to Appeal Red Flags Decision
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.March 2, 2010
The Federal Trade Commission will appeal a December 2009 decision of the DC District Court related to the FTC Red Flags Rule. According to the Hunton & Williams Privacy and Information Security Law Blog, the commission filed a notice last week stating its intention to appeal the court's judgment in American Bar Association v. FTC. The court ruled in favor of the ABA's claim that the Red Flags Rule does not apply to attorneys or law firms.
