Re: Multiple states
It's not clear to me the Attorney Generals trade association has enough critical mass on this issue yet to move forward in any meaningful way. Only a handful of states have made noise. Check out their landing page on data breach notification, it is very old information. No, I think for now you will see the lawsuits pile up and you won't see much movement at the federal level. Sigh.

Multiple states
One thing to bear in mind while watching these lawsuits. Because they are being brought by multiple state governments, you can be sure that the respective consumer-protection departments/bureaus of each state AG's office are collaborating with each other via the National Association of Attorneys General -- right down to sharing discovery documents.

At first I was kind of surprised they didn't go the multistate class-action route, but it occurs to me that the impact is much more easily parsed out because X number of user accounts were definitively breached.
