On the heels of two major Illinois Supreme Court decisions in February, this episode of The BIPA Radar dives into the rising wave of class action cases as a result of the Act, and how these cases have been litigated and settled. Mary and Josh break down last year's decision in the first BIPA case ever tried, which resulted in a $228 million judgment against one of the nation’s largest railway companies. They also discuss how private mediators can serve as neutral parties who assist in facilitating settlements of challenging cases, and the unique role they can play in BIPA litigation. Business owners across the country who operate in the state of Illinois and are concerned with the proper management of biometric information should make sure to tune into this informative episode.
