Facebook Loses First Round In Biometric Data Suit

It looks as though Facebook's motion seeking to dismiss that lawsuit over the collection of biometric data has been denied by the judge presiding over the case. The article states that Facebook was not immediately available for comment.

Facebook Inc (FB.O) lost the first round in a court fight against some of its users who sued the social networking company, alleging it "unlawfully" collected and stored users' biometric data derived from their faces in photographs. The judge presiding over the case in a California federal court on Thursday turned down Facebook's motion seeking dismissal of the suit.
