Session #2: You Can’t Always Get What You Want: Impact of Credit Bureau on Marketers Facing an FTC Investigation

2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET
The 7th Circuit’s decision in FTC v. Credit Bureau was a game-changer: overturning decades of precedent, stymieing the FTC’s ability to seek money in federal court, and creating a circuit split. The decision is already impacting FTC investigations, but it also creates some questions: Will other circuits follow suit? Will the Supreme Court weigh in? Will Congress address the FTC’s Section 13(b) authority? Marketers in every industry will want to hear the latest insights from our experienced FTC practitioners.
