The lawsuit also wants a statement that Apple "wrongfully and unjustifiably damaged" the reputation of the teenager
An 18-year-old from New York sued Apple for $ 1 billion, claiming that ely's face detection system had mistakenly linked him to a number of thefts.
Gosh Bach, who was arrested in his home in November, claims that the order he was served includes a photograph of someone else. The claim also claims that a New York police detective concluded that the thief captured by a shop surveillance camera "does not look anything like Bach.
The lawsuit, citing the detective, says Apple has used face recognition software to identify counterfeiters. The company declined to comment on the case itself; would only say that he does not use such technology in his stores.
Bach said his temporary permit for a student who had no picture was lost or stolen. His lawyer told The Washington Post that the permission might have been presented as an identification in Apple's shop, mistakenly associating the name of the bache with the thief's face in the company's security system. This means that whenever the perpetrator has entered an Apple store, his face will be registered as a bah, said the attorney.
Ba is accused of multiple jurisdictions, including Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York, according to the lawsuit. Three cases have dropped, the court said, but the one in New Jersey is still pending. A New York police spokeswoman told The Post that the case was sealed and that she could not provide information about it.
As far as the Massachusetts case is concerned, the lawsuit said that Bach had never set foot in Boston before the indictment. He even claimed he had an alibi: he was present on his senior ball in Manhattan on the day the Boston store hit.
The lawsuit claims Bah was forced to answer a number of false statements that led to severe stress and difficulties in his life, as well as considerable damage to his positive reputation that he has put so much effort into defending.
The case seeks a $ 1 billion indemnity, a statement that Apple has "wrongfully and unjustifiably damaged" Bach's reputation, and a court order that forces Apple to "resolve the error in stored data," linking the company's identifying information with recognition technology per person of the company.
The lawsuit was filed with the US District Court for the southern New York district.
