Stacy Rosenbach v. Six Flags Settlement: Six Flags Enters Into Agreement, To Pay Up Visitors Up To $200 Each
Six Flags Entertainment Corporations has agreed to enter into a settlement agreement with plaintiff Stacy Rosenbach in relation to the class action lawsuit accusing Six Flags of violating BIPA state law in Illinois regarding information privacy.
Six Flags Class Action Lawsuit Agreement With Plaintiff Stacy
According to reports, Six Flags management has decided that bowing down and accepting the settlement agreement’s demands is the final resort that would play for the best interests of the company.
Also, initial agreement details suggest that the company will dish out $36 million dollars to the settlement fund to end the allegations thrown against them.
The settlement agreement stemmed from a class action lawsuit filed by complainant Stacy Rosenbach after the company allegedly violated provisions of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act when it required its visitors to use a fingerprint scanner before they are allowed entry into the company’s Six Flags Great America location in Gurnee.
When asked to provide her and her son’s fingerprints, Rosenbach did not agree to the request and was not provided prior information about how their personal data would be handled and eventually destroyed while in the hands of Six Flags.
This all reportedly happened when the mother and son Rosenbach paid the Gurnee Six Flags location a visit.
She faced an early defeat in the case’s legal proceedings after a lower court ruled out that she was not hurt by the company’s alleged infractions.
Yet, the Illinois Supreme Court has decided to overturn the earlier decision and contended that Stacy Rosenbach didn’t need to show the damages the improper collection of her biometric data had caused her and her son.
The fact that Six Flags have illegally collected their personal information without their consent is reason enough for the judges to order the legal proceedings to push through.
