Creeping Data Collection at Family Dollar, Dollar Tree

July 23, 2021. By Anne Wallace.
Chicago, IL Family Dollar collected Mantrise Herron’s fingerprints without her permission in apparent violation of Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).

July 15, 2021. By Anne Wallace.
Sacramento, CA On June 8, U.S. Magistrate Judge Barbara A. McAuliffe recommended that the Eastern District of California certify several classes of plaintiffs in Trevino v.
