If 2020 was not bad enough already, we lost Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18, 2020. She was admired by many lawyers and legal scholars, not just in the United States – she was a legal giant, and a great advocate for equality for all. Paul Breitbarth and K Royal discuss the impact Justice Ginsburg had on the legal field and how she inspired respect and devotion. Our homage goes beyond her legal decisions to remember her as the icon she was, and always will be.
In addition, Paul and K touch on a few topics in privacy law, such as whether the US really will pass a federal privacy law and reconsideration of the actions taken towards Facebook in Ireland Also, in the US, there is perhaps an overlooked part of US privacy, a final rule published by the Office of the National Coordinator which implements a portion of the 21st Century Cares Act, on Information Blocking – a rule that has quite a bit in common with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.
Listen in as we pay our respects to the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second woman ever appointed to the US Supreme Court and one who blazed trails for equality in the US, followed by some frank conversation on some current privacy topics. This episode can be heard on our website or streamed below.
