The first panel of judges to the new Data Protection Review Court mandated under the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (DPF) have been appointed by the Biden Administration.
The panel of eight judges includes Eric Holder, the attorney general under former President Barack Obama. Attorney General Merrick Garland emphasised that although the US Department of Justice established the court, its judges will independently decide what remedies are appropriate for the cases in front of them.
The IAPP has posted a more detailed article about the appointments and that 2,5000 (exact quote) businesses are currently DPF certified. The article also touches on the potential legal challenges on the horizon.
