Ward Comments on Illinois Biometrics Law

08 January 2019 Business Insurance News
Partner Christopher Ward was quoted in a Business Insurance article, “Illinois high court takes on biometrics privacy case,” about an Illinois Supreme Court case that could decide what harm is sufficient to satisfy the statutory standing requirements of a law that allows individuals to sue companies that fail to properly notify people about their biometric data collection, use and retention policies.

The Illinois law, Ward said, is “far and away the most aggressive” state law allowing individuals to control their own biometric information.
