Palmersheim & Mathew successfully obtained dismissal of a putative class action lawsuit on behalf of a multi-national paper products company based in the United Kingdom. The plaintiff originally filed his class action complaint in the 12th Judicial Circuit Court, Will County, Illinois and asserted claims on behalf of himself and the putative class arising under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”). Palmersheim & Mathew removed the case to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and the plaintiff subsequently voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit.
