Biometrics Liability on the Rise


Are you Covered?

The floodgates were opened for moving ahead private causes of action in early 2019, when the Illinois Supreme Court found that no proof of actual injury or damage beyond technical infringement was necessary to state a claim under the Biometric Information Privacy Act. As anticipated, coverage disputes pertaining to BIPA class actions are appearing. This white paper reviews how allegations in underlying class actions and coverage provisions in policies can vary widely and discusses coverage for biometrics and case law.
