Facebook has settled the largest consumer privacy case in U.S. history, but only about a quarter of the six million Illinois residents eligible for compensation in this case will receive compensation from the company. < / P > < p > after Monday’s claims deadline, about a third of Facebook’s $650 million settlement will be spent on lawyers and administrative fees, and about 1.57 million people are likely to receive more than $300 per person, according to statistics received by the court. In the class action lawsuit, Facebook was accused of using its photo tagging function to collect biometric images of users without permission. < / P > < p > in the case of class action, the amount of compensation is too low, so it is often not worth bringing a lawsuit. In view of this, 25% of the plaintiffs will get compensation in the end, which is a successful case. Generally speaking, less than 10% of the eligible plaintiffs in a class action claim. < / P > < p > in this case, the judge initially doubted the fairness of a settlement of less than $1 billion, because if users asked for a trial on Facebook, they could have sought damages of up to $5000 for each violation of the Illinois biometric Privacy Information Act. To persuade U.S. District Judge James Donato, lawyers representing Facebook and consumers have added $100 million to the initial $550 million settlement agreement and promised to be more active in notifying the class action lawsuit, including through Facebook users’ accounts. The settlement is scheduled for final approval in early 2021. Global Tech
