Uber driver Mario Pena is suing Microsoft for breach of Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA)
Microsoft provides the backend for Uber's Real-Time ID Check, which takes pictures of drivers for identify verification
BIPA requires companies get written consent before collecting, analyzing and storing state residents’ digital likenesses.
Pena says his security against fraud and ID theft has been compromised without his permission.
Pena is seeking class action status. First hearings will be held in September
