On November 20, 2018, the Illinois Supreme Court heard oral argument on whether a company’s technical violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) is sufficient to confer standing or whether a plaintiff must allege actual harm resulted from the violation. (Rosenbach v. Six Flags Entertainment Corp. et al., No. 123186) (prior decision). The Court’s forthcoming decision will have significant implications for Illinois employers and businesses given the enormous wave of BIPA class actions. [Please see our posts here and here for background on BIPA developments].
