Attorney Charles Blumenfield led a group presentation regarding emerging issues in privacy law to members of the Thomas E. Fairchild Inn of Court, a legal mentorship organization, on Wednesday, October 14, 2015.
The program, entitled “Traps for the Unwary: A Privacy Law Primer”, provided members with an in-depth look into the subject of privacy law. Topics included: unlawful and/or unauthorized interception and circulation of electronic communications, placement of GPS devices, use of drones, and release of medical and financial records, among other subjects.
“The breadth of laws aimed at protecting privacy is astounding,” says Blumenfield. “As new technologies continue to emerge, and the law develops, attorneys representing individuals and businesses alike need to remain well versed in this area in order to better serve their clients.”
