G.D. v. Kenny, et al. & G.D. v. Neighborhood Research Corp., et al.

Brief of Amicus Curiae Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)


EPIC Urges New Jersey Supreme Court to Safeguard Privacy

EPIC has filed a "friend of the court" brief", urging the New Jersey Supreme Court preserve the value of expungement and allow a privacy case to go forward. In G.D. v. Kenny, a New Jersey court dismissed a privacy claim involving publication of information about a prior criminal act, even though the state had issued an expungement order. In the brief, EPIC argued that, "data mining companies ignore judicial determinations and attempt to make conviction records live forever," however, "after someone has been rehabilitated, having paid the prescribed debt to society, he or she should not be penalized in perpetuity."
