20 Sep Shutterfly to Face Privacy Lawsuit
Last Friday, a federal judge allowed privacy lawsuit against image publishing company Shutterfly to continue.
U.S. District Court Judge Joan B. Gottschall in Illinois ruled in favor of Florida resident Alejandro Monroy who filed a class-action complaint which states that the company violated the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.
Monroy said that a photo of him was uploaded to Shutterfly and was tagged with his name, even though he never used the service. The company was also sued in the state for breaking the same law in 2016, but was able to arrive at a settlement.
