CASE ENTRY

Electronic Privacy Information Center v. United States Department of Commerce

By law, the feds must publish a privacy impact statement before “initiating a collection of new information” involving personally identifiable data that will be stored electronically. Nonprofit: Which the feds didn’t do before deciding to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. D.C. Circuit: The nonprofit hasn’t been injured, so the case is dismissed for lack of standing.
