Proposed Illinois Law May Rein In Biometric Data Lawsuits

A bipartisan pair of Illinois state senators has introduced a bill that could rein in the mounting litigation over the state’s Biometric Information Privacy Act, Biometric Update reports.

The bill would remove the law’s private right of action and replace it with enforcement mechanisms in the state government. This could stop the reign of private lawsuits being filed under the law, which the article says “are estimated at more than 200 and growing.” The law has not only led to a spike in litigation, but has also forced some companies to stop selling or restrict the sale of certain entertainment and home security products.
