Peter Swire was quoted in the Washington Post about the new Safe Harbor deal: 

"I'm convinced the new agreement will face legal challenges,” said Peter Swire, a Georgia Institute of Technology law professor who helped negotiate the original Safe Harbor agreement. “I expect the complaints to make it back to the European Court of Justice.”
The court last year ruled that Safe Harbor was invalid on grounds that it placed national security and law enforcement requirements over Europeans’ fundamental privacy rights.
