Judge: At This Point, comScore Need Not Disclose Certain Data
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.March 13, 2012
The analytics company comScore need not disclose certain confidential information about its technology and clients at this time, according to a U.S. District Court ruling last week, MediaPost News reports. Northern District of Illinois Judge Young Kim said the plaintiffs must first have the suit certified as a class action. The suit alleges that comScore violated federal and state laws by collecting sensitive personal information of users without their knowledge, among other activities. Kim also ruled that the company must tell the plaintiffs' legal team what data it sold to clients, the report states.
