MediaPost reports Amazon has asked U.S. District Court Judge Richard Jones to send a children’s privacy lawsuit to arbitration. A group of parents filed a class-action lawsuit against the tech company for allegedly storing children’s voiceprints through Alexa devices without consent. The plaintiffs claim this practice violates privacy laws in eight states, including Illinois, Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania. “The plaintiffs’ parents in this suit, who signed up for and then permitted their children to use Amazon’s Alexa service on devices in their homes cannot avoid arbitrating their claims by suing in the names of those children,” Amazon said in its motion filed to Jones.
