Case Seeks Return of "Massive Amounts" of Data
PRIVACY LAW—U.S. & MACAUSeptember 19, 2011
A former Las Vegas Sands (LVS) Macau CEO who is involved in a wrongful termination suit has been accused of refusing to return "massive amounts of confidential company data," AsiaOne News reports. LVS has listed concerns that Steven Jacobs "will disclose company documents that contain personal data in violation of Macau law. The Macau Personal Data Protection Act provides for serious sanctions in such circumstances." An attorney for Jacobs is disputing the plaintiff's claims and has said "Macau data privacy laws do not prevent any of the parties from producing documents in this action."
