Quinn Emanuel Partner and co-chair of the firm's Data Privacy and Security Practice; Stephen Broome, alongside Associates Meredith Mandell, Kaitlin Sheehan, and Sydney Snower, have co-authored an article for Law360 - “Limiting BIPA Damages After Ill. Biometric Consent Violations”.
This expert analysis examines two recent court rulings in cases related to biometric information in the Illinois Supreme Court, which ruled that each time, not just the first, an entity collects or discloses someone's biometric information without consent, it is a separate, actionable violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.
This article discusses the implications and potential risks these rulings will have for businesses in Illinois, where biometric data is collected and provides advice on how, moving forward, these businesses and those associated with them can manage the risks of litigation.
