    Dull?! This is GOLD for a legislation course. It is a pretty decent example of “ordinary meaning” vs. grammar rule arguments, though I’m surprised that the Court didn’t muster any structural arguments to bolster its (obviously correct, in my opinion) conclusion.

    I really like this case (or at least, the interesting twist that it represents).

    Typically privacy advocates see the corporation as the bad guy. Afterall, they’re the ones collecting or disclosing PII without consent. My question for true privacy advocates arguing for stronger privacy rights is: is it difficult to reconcile that those rights may, one day, apply to corporations as well as consumers?
