The Illinois Supreme Court granted our client, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Union No. Local 705, leave to file an amicus brief before the Illinois Supreme Court in the Walton v. Roosevelt University case. On behalf of the Teamsters, we urged that the high court protect the rights of union members for Illinois statutory claims. The case before the Court was a claim brought under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). We are grateful for the Teamster’s participation in this important case to help protect union rights in Illinois.
A copy of the Teamsters brief is available here.
