ChoicePoint's Comeback Tour
The rehabilitation project seems to be resonating. Law professor Daniel Solove, one of the company's harshest critics, told the New York Times that "I have to give them a lot of credit." Solove, along with Chris Hoofnagle -- who hounded the company for its data practices when he worked at the Electronic Privacy Information Center --, met with Curling in March at the Computers, Freedom and Privacy Conference, where the company rented a suite in order to make its pitch to its critics.
At the time, Solove was wary of news getting out that he was meeting with ChoicePoint -- not surprising given that he and Hoofnagle filed an FTC complaint about ChoicePoint in 2004. But now he's comfortable talking to the New York Times about the company's about-face.11/16/2006
