CHICAGO — A man has filed a class action lawsuit against Move-Tastic Inc. for allegedly scanning his fingerprints and those of other workers without consent, for use with the company's employee punch clock systems, to track employee work hours.
Martin Ragsdale filed a complaint on April 26 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging he and other similarly situated individuals have suffered damages, including invasion of privacy, as a result of the defendant's allegedly unlawful business practice, violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA.)
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for injunctive and equitable relief, statutory damages of $1,000 for each negligent violation, statutory damages of $5,000 for each willful violation, monetary damages, attorneys' fees, costs, other litigation expenses and any further relief that the court deems just. He is represented by Evan M. Meyers and William Kingston of McGuire Law PC in Chicago.
