IMS Health Inc., et al., v. Sorrell, et al.

Brief of Amicus Curiae Electronic Privacy Information Center in Support of Appellee and Urging Affirmance

EPIC Urges Appeals Court to Protect Prescription Data

EPIC filed a friend of the court brief in the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit today, urging the judges to uphold a Vermont law that regulates companies that sell or use prescriber-identifiable data for marketing. Several data-mining companies challenged the law after it was upheld by a district court. EPIC's amicus brief supports the district court's conclusion. The EPIC brief argues that Vermont has a substantial state interest in privacy protection and that the data miners' de-identification practices do not, in fact, protect patient privacy.
