CDIA filed an amicus at the merits stage in support of TransUnion’s brief in TransUnion v. Ramirez.  The question before the Court is whether either Article III or Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 permits a damages class action when the vast majority of the class suffered no actual injury, let alone an injury anything like what the class representative suffered.

Amici also included the Washington Legal Foundation; Retail Litigation Center; eBay. Facebook Google, CCIA, Internet Ass’n, and TechNet; Home Depot; the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and NFIB; PBSA; NCRA; and ACA.  The United States also filed a brief.

In December 2020, CDIA filed an amicus brief in support of the cert petition.
