By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 1 – Lemonade Insurance Company has been sued for allegedly unlawful collection, storage, analysis and use of its customers' biometric data. 

  On May 31, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn held a conference. Inner City Press covered it.

 The complaint notes that Lemonade "touts is ability to extract 1,600 data points about a customer by asking only 13 questions."

On May 31, allegations were made about Lemonade's use of iris scans, fingerprints, voiceprints and hand and face geometry scans, and to a similar case in Illinois.

 A stay of discovery was requested.  Judge Netburn said she would take it under advisement and rule soon.

The case is Pruden v. Lemonade, Inc. et al., 21-cv-7070 (Koeltl / Netburn)
