Data Privacy & Cybersecurity

In the past few decades, data privacy has become a fundamental civil rights issue for Americans. Ever-evolving technology and citizens’ near-constant surveillance pose increasing threats. Loevy + Loevy believes data privacy is a fundamental right that should be respected to the full extent of the law.

Experienced Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Attorneys

Our firm has handled a number of data privacy cases around the country, including claims under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), one of the nation’s strongest laws protecting personal information.

Recently, our firm tried the first BIPA case ever to go trial, Richard Rogers v. BNSF Railway Co., 19-cv-03083. We obtained a record $228 million jury verdict in October 2022, the largest of its kind. Our firm (led by attorneys Jon Loevy and Mike Kanovitz) represented a class of more than 45,000 truck drivers alleging that BNSF Railway Co. violated state law by collecting fingerprints without proper disclosures and written consent.

Loevy + Loevy’s successful track record also led to our appointment by a federal judge as interim lead class counsel in the nationally-regarded lawsuit In re: Clearview AI (21-cv-00135 in the Northern District of Illinois). We represent a group of Illinois residents who claim Clearview AI—a facial recognition startup that has scraped three billion facial image photographs from the internet without notice or consent—has violated BIPA by using artificial intelligence algorithms to scan the face geometry of each individual depicted in the photographs in order to harvest the individuals’ unique biometric identifiers and corresponding biometric information.
