TDR partner John Fitzgerald was quoted in a news story by Law360 concerning Facebook’s $550 million settlement of class action litigation under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.  As Fitzgerald explained in the Law360 article, “This settlement shows that BIPA not only has teeth, but that those teeth are extremely sharp.”  See Allison Grande, BIPA Bares Its Teeth in Facebook Biometric Privacy Deal (Law360, Jan. 30, 2020)(subscription required to read the article).

Fitzgerald has authored a book-length Guide to the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, which will be published shortly by the Illinois State Bar Association.
