Illinois Supreme Court Oral Arguments to be Streamed Online Tuesday, Nov. 20

The Illinois Supreme Court will livestream oral arguments in two cases on Tuesday, Nov. 20.

The court will hear arguments in the cases of Stacy Rosenbach v. Six Flags Entertainment Corporation and JoAnn Smith v. The Vanguard Group, Inc. The livestream will begin at 9 a.m.

In the case of Stacy Rosenbach v. Six Flags Entertainment Corp., Rosenbach alleged that Six Flags violated the law when it scanned her 14-year-old son’s thumbprint as part of his season pass entry into Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois, without written consent. A state appeals court determined that she didn’t have standing because she didn’t show injury or adverse effect under the state’s Biometric Information Privacy Act. The supreme court will determine whether she has to show harm to sue under that law.

The supreme court will also hear oral arguments in JoAnn Smith v. The Vanguard Group, Inc., in which JoAnn Smith, surviving spouse of Donald Smith and the administrator of his estate, alleges that the deceased man’s two sons have been listed as beneficiaries of an IRA administered by the Vanguard Group in violation of a court order.  

More information about the arguments can be found on the Illinois Supreme Court's website
