Data protection: Laws of complaint for consumer protection possible

 Data protection: Laws of complaint for consumer protection possible Consumer protection associations may soon receive the green light from the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) to go to court due to possible data protection violations of companies - even if there are no specifically affected people. However, there could be conditions for this, for example that presumably damaged consumers can also be identified. So it emerged on Thursday at a negotiation in Karlsruhe, in which the Federal Consumer Center is proceeding against Facebook.

The new constitutional judge Ketanji Brown Jackson also took part in the first hearing of the session year - the first African -American judge at the Supreme Court in the history of the Court of Justice. The liberal lawyer nominated by President Joe Biden was confirmed by the Senate in April. She replaced the also liberal constitutional judge Stephen Breyer, who retired.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, supreme guide of the Islamic Republic of Iran, came out of silence on Monday October 3, 2022 to affirm that the demonstrations in Iran would be orchestrated by the United States and Israel.

Jackson's entry into the Supreme Court did not change the clear conservative majority at the Court of Justice: six of the nine constitutional judges belong to the conservative camp, three of them were nominated by Biden's predecessor Donald Trump.

The conservative majority had made worldwide headlines in June when it led the "Roe v. Wade" fundamental judgment that had been in force for almost 50 years, which had anchored a fundamental fundamental right to abortions. This gave states the right to massively restrict or ban pregnancy abortions, a historical turning point. In other controversial judgments, the constitutional judges strengthened the rights of gun owners and weakened the powers of the environmental authority EPA.

Liberal observers fear that the Supreme Court could also make pioneering conservative judgments in the new year of session. Among other things, the judges will deal with a law to protect the rights of African American voters. In a further case, it is about the competencies of states in nationwide elections - a highly explosive issue, especially since the 2020 presidential elections that were shaped by incorrect allegations by incumbent.

is also the politics of many universities to take into account the skin color of the applicants when choosing students. This procedure known under the name Affirmative Action is intended to improve the university access of minorities, but has been criticized by conservative activists and politicians for a long time.

David Cole from the Civil Rights Organization American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said that the Supreme Court "used his newly won conservative power aggressively in the past meeting of the meeting" in order to impose established case law. "This year the court seems ready to do this again." It cannot be assumed that the Supreme Court will appear "moderately", said Cole.

Ilya Shapiro from the Conservative Menu factory Manhattan Institute, on the other hand, said that the Supreme Court is currently only in the process of correcting the "Excesses" of the 1970s.

The extremely powerful Supreme Court plays a central role in the United States institutional structure. The Court of Justice decides on the constitutionality of laws and government action and basically has the last word for legal issues. The Supreme Court has made groundbreaking decisions on highly controversial topics such as the right to abortion, the right of weapons and the death penalty.
