As part of the effort to restore the European Union’s faith in U.S. privacy protections, Congress passed the Judicial Redress Act of 2015, which the President signed into law on February 24.  The Act extends some of the protections of the Privacy Act of 1974 to citizens of certain foreign countries, including the right to seek judicial redress for certain violations of those protections.  But the rights it grants non-U.S. citizens are quite limited, and make one wonder whether this Act has been oversold on both sides of the Atlantic by parties eager to solve the impasse created by the demise of the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor.  The Act does, though, bring the EU-US “Umbrella Agreement” regarding law enforcement cooperation one step closer to completion.
