EAST PEORIA — More than 1,000 patrons of the Par-A-Dice Casino could be able to receive money from the company in connection with the settlement of a class-action lawsuit.That's the belief of attorneys in recent federal and state court filings regarding the casino's use of facial recognition cameras, which they contended was in violation of the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act.
