This week, Google has been granted permission to appeal to the UK Supreme Court as part of the decision in Google Inc. v. Vidal-Hall & Others (2015). This is about rights to claim compensation for breaches of the Data Protection Act.
Compensation rights are defined in Section 13 of the Data Protection Act. Section 13 permits individuals to claim compensation for (i) damage; or (ii) damage and distress (but not, generally, distress alone).
We expect the Supreme Court to hear this some time early next year. We will keep you posted on developments.
