Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wants to penalize Meta Platforms for violating Texas’ biometric-privacy laws. Texas says Facebook illegally harvested the geometries of faces in photos posted on the social media site. “Tens of millions of violations” of state law occurred between 2010 and 2021, according to the Wall Street Journal. Facebook last year agreed to pay $650 million to settle a class action in which the company was accused of violating Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) The case trundles on, however, as two class members have appealed the settlement to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to the court of Appeals. Facebook has become a very reliable lightning rod when it comes to the use and alleged misuse . . .
