UK Supreme Court to hear appeal in Google v Vidal-Hall

In April 2015, the English Court of Appeal, in Google v Vidal-Hall, held that the Data Protection Act 1998 permits compensation for non-pecuniary loss, such as distress, where privacy rights have been violated. The UK Supreme Court has granted Google permission to appeal in relation to this aspect of the Court of Appeal’s finding.
