A federal judge has ruled that a class action lawsuit against Facebook over its photo-scanning technology may proceed. The case action suit, which will cover millions of users was filed by a group of individuals who say Facebook has violated Illinois law by gathering and storing biometric data without their consent. Under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act of 2008, Facebook could have to pay $1,000 to $5,000 for each time a person’s image is used without consent. Damages could potentially run into the billions of dollars. Google is currently facing a similar lawsuit in Chicago.

Research looking into the frequency of personal injury claims filed by vehicle found the most common vehicles for personal injury claims filed are 4-door micro cars. Large pick-up trucking coming in as the least likely to have a personal injury claim, with large luxury SUVs coming in second. Interestingly though, when listing the top 10 vehicles with fewest injury claims, sports cars took 7 of the top 10 spots.

It looks as though Pres. Trump's first Circuit Judge posting will be for the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, and is pulling from the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Kentucky. J. Thapar cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday and moves on to floor, where he will likely be confirmed. J. Thapar became the nation’s first federal district judge of South Asian descent when the U.S Senate confirmed him in late 2007.

New legal realm of automated vehicles and liability. Who is responsible when a collision occurs and a vehicle was on "autopilot"? As vehicles become more autonomous it is likely that liability will begin to shift from the driver to the car, but it is still as of yet uncharted legal territory

For an update on the confirmation hearings, check out the live blog. Highlights include; "When I became a judge they gave me a gavel and not a rubber stamp" and "a good judge doesn’t give a whit about politics." That precedent "desires our respect becasue it represents our collective wisdom," and the idea that he knows better "would be an act of hubris."

A new decision by Harvard Law School will make the LSAT no longer a requirement starting this fall. They will now accept the GRE and Law School Admission Test. This decision came only a day after the ABA announced they are considering changing their standards to allow tests other than the LSAT to be used.
