Illinois Residents Sue Motorola Mobility

Thousands of smartphone users in Illinois are suing Motorola Mobility.  The Chicago Tribune reports a lawsuit filed this week accuses the Chicago-based company of breaking its own arbitration provision by refusing to pay a seven-point-million-dollar filing fee in a mass arbitration claim.  The arbitration action claims Motorola violated the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act by collecting personal data from users’ selfie photos without permission.
