Seventh Circuit Affirms City’s Right to Collect Resident Energy-Consumption Data Every 15 Minutes

August 29, 2018 by Reena R. Bajowala, Partner
On August 16, 2018, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeal issued Naperville Smart Meter Awareness v. City of Naperville, No. 16-3766 (slip op.), finding the City of Naperville’s mandatory “smart meter” program was not an unreasonable search under the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The City of Naperville owns and operates the public utility that provides electricity to the city’s residents. The utility collects and retains residents’ energy-consumption data at 15-minute intervals for up to three years. Traditional analog energy meters typically collect monthly energy consumption in a single lump figure once a month. Notably, a resident cannot opt-out of Naperville’s smart meter program. The Court analyzed whether the data collection constituted a “search.”

FDA Software Precertification Program: Fast Track to Regulating “Software as a Medical Device?”

October 24, 2017 by Kimberly C. Metzger, Partner
In July, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its innovative Software Precertification Pilot Program (#FDAPreCert on social media) to evaluate a more efficient, risk-based approach to regulating digital health technology (DHT). The program is limited to software as a medical device (SaMD), software that performs its intended medical purpose independently of a hardware medical device. This is not to be confused with software in a medical device (SiMD, software embedded in a medical device) or medical device data systems (MDDS, technologies that receive, transmit, store, or display data from medical devices). The pilot will test precertification of a limited pool of SaMD developers with a demonstrated record of high-quality software design and testing.
