Feds seek dismissal of planned class action against RCMP over facial recognition tool

CP24: 'The federal government is asking a judge to dismiss a Quebec photographer's bid for certification of a class-action lawsuit, possibly involving millions of people, over the RCMP's use of a controversial facial-recognition tool.

'In a submission to the Federal Court, government lawyers say Ha Vi Doan cannot allege that she suffered "harm of any kind" as a result of the national police force's dealings with U.S. firm Clearview AI.

'Doan's proposed class-action lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for her and other Canadians whose photos and related information were allegedly part of a massive database compiled by Clearview AI and used under licence by the Mounties.'
