“The Intersection of the California Consumer Privacy Act and California’s Preexisting Consumer Protection Statutes,” The Recorder

In this column, Jenner & Block Partner Kate T. Spelman explains that the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is set to take effect on January 1, 2020.  One issue that may be left for future judicial interpretation, she observes, is how the CCPA will intersect with preexisting consumer protection statutes.  In particular, she highlights the Unfair Competition Law (UCL) and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA).  She discusses how the CCPA may limit certain UCL and CLRA claims.  The column is the first in a series of consumer-related articles for The Recorder.
