ERLINDA O. AQUINO VS JANET GARCIA

On February 13, 2017, plaintiff was terminated for violating defendant Hospital’s Privacy Policy and HIPAA privacy rules. (See DSS 64.)

GONZALES VS TILLY’S INC.

Defendant’s privacy policy is attached as Exhibit 3 to Plaintiff’s complaint and can, therefore, be considered by the Court. The policy does not comply with the requirements of § 1798.83 (c)(2). The phrase “direct marketing” does not appear anywhere in the Privacy Policy. There is no provision requiring the customer’s agreement before information is provided.

LUDLOW VS GEICO GENERAL INSURANCE COMPANY

Plaintiff has failed to allege all of the elements for a breach of contract, and whether Geico's privacy policy is a term of the insurance contract. It is unclear whether plaintiff is basing his claims for invasion of privacy upon an intrusion upon seclusion or a public disclosure of private facts. Defendant's motion to strike is moot in light of the ruling on the demurrer.
