Commercial Litigation attorneys Jonathan Handler and Emily Zandy authored a Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article on May 23, titled "The SJC on data privacy and 93A's injury requirement." They discuss the Supreme Judicial Court's (SJC's) recent decision in Tyler v. Michaels Stores, Inc., which "held that zip codes are 'personal identification information' subject to ?105(a)'s prohibition against a merchant's recording such information absent any requirement on the part of the credit card issuer," and review the decision's implications for defining "injury" with regard to Chapter 93A claims.
