As reported across several news media outlets today, a dozen NYC parents have filed suit against New York State Department of Education requesting a temporary restraining order to prevent New York from sharing certain personally identifiable information with its non-profit agency, InBloom, Inc.  Their claim is that the release of personally identifiable information without parental consent violates New York’s Personal Privacy Protection Law (PPPL) Interestingly, the judge denied the temporary restraining order.
