Brighton-Best International, Inc.
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Brighton-Best International, Inc. (“Defendant”) regarding timekeeping devices used by Defendant from February 8, 2014 through March 29, 2022, which required employees to provide biometric information (e.g. fingerprints, etc.) for timekeeping purposes, allegedly in violation of the Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”). The case is entitled Houston, et al. v. Brighton-Best International, Inc., Case No. 2019 L 000162, pending in the Circuit Court of the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit, DuPage County, Illinois. The proposed settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Defendant, and Defendant denies that it violated the law. The Court has not decided who is right or wrong. Rather, to save the time, expense, and distraction of litigation, the parties have agreed to settle the lawsuit. The settlement has been preliminarily approved by a court in Wheaton, Illinois.
