ALM Features Shook Attorneys on Multimillion Dollar Class Action Dismissal

ALM’s Daily Business Review featured Shook Attorneys Al Saikali and Jennifer McLoone in Washed Up: These Miami Lawyers Just Helped Whirlpool Defeat a Multimillion-Dollar Privacy Class Action.

Shooks Chair of Privacy and Data Security Practice Al Saikali and Partner Jennifer McLoone represented Whirlpool in the dismissal of the class action matter brought by visitors to a website belonging to the corporation. The dismissal marks the first ruling by a federal court in Florida on this application of wiretap and privacy litigation and is expected to affect the outcomes of similar cases in other states. 

“The court saw the strategy for what it was—an incorrect application of Florida’s wiretap law,” said Saikali.
