Beck v. McDonald, 15-1395

In consolidated appeals brought by veterans who received medical treatment and health care at the William Jennings Bryan Dorn Veterans Affairs Medical Center (Dorn VAMC) against the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and Dorn VAMC officials, alleging violations of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. section 552a et seq., and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), 5 U.S.C. section 701 et seq., after two data breaches at the Center compromised their personal information, the district court's dismissal of the actions for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction is affirmed where Plaintiffs failed to establish a non-speculative, imminent injury-in-fact for purposes of Article III standing.
