A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Cheese Merchants of America, LLC (“Defendant”) of Bartlett, Illinois regarding its use of an alleged Biometric System between February 27, 2015 and March 6, 2020 that allegedly scanned employee biometric identifiers (e.g., handprints, fingerprints, etc.) for timekeeping purposes and that was allegedly used in violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”).

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.
