The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018: A Sea Change in the Protection of California Consumers’ Personal Information
Following a series of publicly disclosed data breaches, California citizens submitted a ballot proposition entitled the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018. Because ballot propositions are difficult to amend once adopted by the voters, California legislative and executive leaders reached an agreement with the ballot proposition’s proponents that it would be withdrawn if a consumer privacy act became law by June 28, 2018.
Sanford Shatz (Irvine) co-authored an article summarizing the CCPA’s scope and requirements, how it affects consumers and businesses, its enforcement provisions, and suggestions for implementation of its requirements in the ABA Business Law Section’s The Business Lawyer, Volume 75, Issue 2, Spring 2020.
