Parties to US litigation at times argue that foreign data protection laws, in particular the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), prohibit the discovery of personal identifying information about European data subjects. US courts usually reject this argument, relying on established Supreme Court precedent of more than 30 years.

The recent Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) landmark Schrems II judgment invalidating the EU-US Privacy Shield, however, could trigger a new challenge for such data transfers. Would Schrems II force companies obligated to produce EU personal data to the task of determining whether to comply with US discovery obligation rules that risk fines under the GDPR for illegal data transfers or to defy the US courts?

Join us as we discuss EU data transfer and US IP litigation after Schrems II.
