McGuireWoods’ Justin Yedor Quoted on New California Privacy Enforcement Agency

November 19, 2020

Bloomberg Law quoted McGuireWoods Los Angeles associate Justin Yedor in a Nov. 4, 2020, story about the new privacy enforcement agency established under California Proposition 24.

The California Privacy Protection Agency is the first of its kind tasked solely with enforcing privacy laws under the 2018 California Consumer Privacy Act. The agency will begin regulating companies on Jan. 1, 2023. Seventeen states have deliberated similar privacy measures, but it is unknown how quickly they may follow California’s lead.

“California is already pretty far out ahead,” Yedor said of the state’s advanced privacy model. “Most states don’t even have the laws that would apply, let alone a regulator solely devoted to enforcing those laws.”
