Supreme Court Says You Can’t Sue the Corporation that Wrongly Marked You a Terrorist

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court barred the courthouse door to thousands of people who were wrongly marked as “potential terrorists” by credit giant TransUnion. The Court’s analysis of their “standing” —whether they were sufficiently injured to file a lawsuit—reflects a naïve view of the increasingly powerful role that personal data, and the private corporations that harvest and monetize it, play in everyday life. It also threatens congressional efforts to protect our privacy and other intangible rights from predation by Facebook, Google and other tech giants.

Seems like they made big mistake on this one.

Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats are immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

Argh!
