While plaintiffs suing companies over data breaches have encountered difficulties proving standing in the past, the tide has begun turning in their favor. In In Re LinkedIn User Privacy Litigation, the U.S. Court for the Northern District of California allowed a plaintiff to proceed with her claim that LinkedIn violated California law by misrepresenting the security measures it took to protect its users’ data. The court found that the plaintiff’s allegation that LinkedIn’s misrepresentations caused her to pay for LinkedIn’s premium service was sufficient to establish standing, as she alleged a concrete economic injury.
