More on Joe Wolfe's U.S. Supreme Court case involving the Privacy Act

This Findlaw column ("The Supreme Court Considers Whether a Privacy Act Plaintiff Can Recover $1000 Even Without Proof of Damages") is about a case brought by Joe Wolfe in the W.D. Va. that has filtered its way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Here's an earlier post about the case. The Fourth Circuit opinion is here.

The Findlaw author concludes that "even if these plaintiffs lose, future plaintiffs should win, even if they cannot prove damages. That is because privacy is valuable in itself, even when actual damages cannot be proven."
