Joliet Harrah’s Casino Sued Over Facial Recognition:
A new Will County lawsuit accuses Harrah’s Casino in downtown Joliet of violating the state’s Biometric Information Privacy Act by possessing the facial geometry scans and identifying information of its Joliet casino customers “without creating and following a written policy, made available to the public.”

The lawsuit asks a Will County judge to award liquidated or actual monetary damages, whichever is higher, to lawsuit co-plaintiffs Leon Martin and Anthony Adams and members of the class action lawsuit, “for each violation of the Biometric Information Privacy Act.”

The lawsuit was filed by attorney Douglas Werman of Werman Salas P.C. in Chicago and New York attorneys Joseph A. Fitapelli and Dana Cimera of Fitapelli & Schaffer. The same law firm has also filed a near-identical lawsuit at the Will County Courthouse against Joliet’s other gambling casino, Hollywood Casino in Joliet.

“Defendants use facial recognition technology with their video security cameras at their Illinois casinos,” the suit explains. “Defendants’ facial recognition technology identifies a person by scanning the geometry of a person’s facial features and comparing that scan against databases of stored facial geometry templates.”

According to the lawsuit, the co-plaintiffs are residents of Illinois and both members of the Caesars rewards program “who gambled at defendants’ Harrah’s Joliet casino during the limitations period.

“Adams has gambled at defendants’ Harrah’s Joliet casino hundreds of times in the last five years, including most recently within the last week,” the suit states. “Adams has been a member of the Caesars rewards program for approximately two to three years.”
