FTC responds to LabMD's motion for sanctions in FTC v. LabMD
The FTC’s response to LabMD’s motion for sanctions (pdf) is now available online. FTC’s response begins:
Respondent’s Motion, which exceeds the applicable word limit and regarding which counsel never met-and-conferred with Complaint Counsel, seeks relief that the Commission’s Rules do not authorize. If there were a legal basis for Respondent’s relief, its baseless claims regarding Complaint Counsel’s evidence ignores its own admissions regarding practices that cause or are likely to cause substantial injury to consumers, including its admission that a 1,718-page LabMD document containing Social Security numbers, health information, and other sensitive personal information for more than 9,300 consumers (“1718 File”) was available for sharing through LimeWire installed on a LabMD computer.
