On July 30, 2020, David C. Shonka will participate on a panel to discuss The Sedona Conference Commentary on the Enforceability in U.S. Courts of Orders and Judgments Entered under GDPR (“Commentary”).  The Sedona Conference Working Group 11 on Data Security and Privacy Liability developed this Commentary to evaluate the enforceability in a United States court of an order or judgment entered under the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by an EU court, or by an EU Member State supervisory authority, against a U.S.-based controller or processor. The goal of the Commentary is to provide guidance to stakeholders in the EU and in the U.S. on the factors—both legal and practical—that speak to the enforcement of GDPR mandates through U.S. legal proceedings.

A panel of practitioners who helped develop the Commentary will discuss the following:

  • The purpose of the Commentary
  • Its target audience
  • Summary of conclusions regarding the enforceability of various kinds of GDPR orders
  • Key defenses that could be raised by a U.S. defendant
  • Other routes to GDPR enforcement via U.S. courts
  • Key practical issues raised by the Commentary
