NHL’s Blackhawks avoid lawsuit for illegal facial recognition at home games

Sep 1, 2021

The Chicago Blackhawks hockey team won’t face a lawsuit alleging violations of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act over the use of facial recognition devices at its home hockey games, after the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed their claims.

Cook County Circuit Court dismissed the would-be class claims on the motion of lead plaintiff Keith Allen, “having concluded the case is without merit and having decided to dismiss such case without payment from any defendant.”
