20 May FTC vs. LabMD hearing starts
Quote from PHPrivacy
Opening statements were held today in FTC vs. LabMD, one of only two data security enforcement cases that have not resulted in a consent order to settle charges.
FTC attorney Alain Sheer provided the overview of the FTC’s complaint, alleging that LabMD failed to have a reasonable and appropriate data security program. He was only just into his opening statement, however, when Chief Administrative Law Judge D. Michael Chappell interrupted him to ask, “Is it your position that the information that was on the peer-to-peer file-sharing program, LimeWire, that was a violation of the law, merely posting it on that? Is that your position?”
