On June 21, 2024, WLF joined the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, NetChoice LLC, and the Interactive Advertising Bureau on a brief urging the Ninth Circuit to affirm a trial court’s rejection of a suit in which the plaintiff lacked standing to pursue her state wiretapping claims. The amicus brief was drafted by Megan Brown, Jeremy Broggi, and Joel Nolette of Wiley Rein LLP. Amici argued that dismissal was consistent with the Supreme Court’s recent teaching in TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez on Article III’s need for “a ‘close relationship’ to a harm traditionally recognized as providing a basis for a lawsuit in American courts.”  Alternatively, the brief asks the court to affirm dismissal because the complaint fails to state a claim under Pennsylvania’s Wiretap Act.
