On March 2, 2015, Washington Legal Foundation released a statement regarding the upcoming oral argument in regards to Federal Trade Commission v. Wyndham Hotels and Resorts LLC. After the U.S. District Court of New Jersey refused to dismiss the lawsuit on April 7, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit will now hear oral argument for the case on Tuesday March 3, 2015. The court will decide if the FTC has the authority to regulate companies’ data-security practices after the agency claimed that the hotel and hospitality service company engaged in “unfair trade practices” by allegedly failing to prevent unauthorized hackers from breaching its data defenses.
