Molly Arranz was quoted by the Cook County Record in an article discussing Facebook's $550 million settlement in the biometric class action case that has been litigated for years. The article, titled "'This should keep you up at night': $550M Facebook settlement could spark yet more IL biometrics class actions," discusses how the case brings more awareness to the Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). "I suspect you’re going to see a number of plaintiffs’ attorneys, who may have been focused before on things like wage-and-hour claims, now pivot to press BIPA class actions,” Molly said. Molly also discusses new BIPA-related class action cases against employers and urges employers to raise the issue with lawmakers saying, "This is something that should be keeping you up at night, to seek changes."
