Elizabeth E. McGinn Quoted in MLex Article, "FTC Likely to Demand Evidence of Harm, Rely Less on 'Unfairness' Claims Under GOP Leadership"


Elizabeth E. McGinn

Elizabeth E. McGinn was quoted on January 27, 2017 in a MLex article regarding the FTC’s plan to “demand evidence that there has been a concrete harm to consumers before it brings privacy and data security enforcement actions.”

The article also noted, “The end result is that the FTC will focus more on deception, but with an emphasis on picking cases where the deception actually mattered and consumers were actually harmed.” McGinn added, “A change in focus may not be pronounced,” assuming that FTC complaints claim to be unfair have also involved deceptive claims.
