Law360’s Evan Weinberger’s Report on Spokeo Argument

Here.  An excerpt:

The arguments in Spokeo Inc. v. Robins et al. took the usual pattern of the four liberal justices arguing for a broad interpretation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act and standing to bring claims under Article III and the conservative justices appearing to seek to limit companies’ exposure to court proceedings. In the middle was Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court’s usual swing justice.

Notably quiet on those issues was Justice Kennedy, who did not tip his hand. The justice did ask questions regarding the power of regulators to bring cases under the FCRA — theFederal Trade Commission brought its own against Spokeo — but otherwise stayed on the sidelines of the debate over who could bring an FCRA suit.

Update: Adam Liptak's report in the Times is here.
