In recent years, the number of “no-injury” class actions for statutory damages filed has increased significantly. These class actions are filed based on technical violations of statutes that require companies to comply with certain procedures. The claims brought in these cases often do not involve any harm to the plaintiff that traditionally would have been recognized as an injury. Examples include certain claims based on the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act. A moderated panel of experienced outside and in-house counsel will describe the state of the law with respect to no-injury class actions for statutory damages. The discussion will explain several widespread statutory no-injury claims and available defenses; describe compliance and risk management strategies for avoiding such claims in the first place; and identify litigation trends and common tactical issues.
