Recent Court Rulings on Biometric-Privacy Damages and What They Mean for Companies – Tae Andrews Featured Guest on Business Insurance’s The BI Interview
The February 2023 Supreme Court of Illinois decision in Cothron v. White Castle System Inc. held that Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) claims accrue each time a company scans or transmits an individual’s biometric data, not simply the first time. As a guest on Business Insurance’s The BI Interview video series, Senior Managing Associate Tae Andrews explains what this ruling and others mean for potential damages under BIPA and companies that use fingerprints, face scans, and other biometric identifiers. He also discusses why the Supreme Court of Illinois’s ruling will likely result in increased litigation and how insurance can cover BIPA and other biometric-privacy claims.
