Thomas B. Griffith Sworn into Data Protection Review Court

The Wheatley Constitutional Government Non-Resident Fellow is one of eight members appointed to the court.

On November 14, 2023, Wheatley Non-Resident Fellow Thomas B. Griffith was appointed to a relatively new privacy law court, called the Data Protection Review Court. The Data Protection Review Court was created to help the United States comply with the EU's data-privacy laws. This court will help to resolve disputes surrounding international privacy regulations and protect the data privacy of foreign visitors to the US.

Judge Griffith was chosen for his previous experience with national security and digital privacy laws. He will serve a four-year term with the possibility of renewal.
