UPDATE: we filed an Amended petition on Nov. 22. The date in court is now Jan. 10.
This morning, the law firm Pitta and Giblin LLP sued Commissioner King and the Board of Regents in NY State Supreme Court on behalf of twelve NYC parents, and asked for a restraining order to stop the unnecessary, unprecedented and illegal disclosure of the personal information of millions of New York State’s public school students to a corporation called inBloom Inc. In turn, the purpose of inBloom is to provide this information to for-profit vendors, so they can data-mine and develop their software products.
Hearings are scheduled in Albany on December 6. If you want to stay updated, be sure to sign up for our newsletter on our website.
