Last month, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois held, in Aranda v. Caribbean Cruise Line, Inc., that a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) constituted a concrete injury that conferred standing without any additional allegations of harm. In doing so, it engaged in an extensive analysis of the Supreme Court’s decision in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins and expressly disagreed with the Central District of California's decision, in Smith v. Aitima Medical Equipment, which had found no standing in similar circumstances. The decision marks an important interpretation of the Supreme Court’s muddled decision in Spokeo, which could influence how courts approach standing in cases alleging statutory violations in the future.
