8th Circuit Affirms Dismissal Of Suit Over GameStop’s Disclosure Of Information

Mealey's (August 16, 2016, 1:21 PM EDT) -- ST. LOUIS — Although it found that a plaintiff had standing to bring putative class claims against a gaming website operator for purported disclosure of users’ personally identifiable information (PII), an Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel majority on Aug. 16 concluded that the plaintiff failed to state a claim upon which relief can be granted, affirming a trial court’s dismissal of his complaint (Matthew Carlsen v. GameStop Inc., et al., No. 15-2453, 8th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 14999).
