A lawsuit was filed against California-based Apple Inc. on April 22 by a teenager who claims that the company's facial recognition security software falsely linked him to a series of store thefts. The New York teen is seeking $1 billion in damages. The teen says that his problems began when his non-photo driver's permit was stolen. The lawsuit alleges that a serial shoplifter presented security officers at an Apple store with the stolen permit when he was asked to establish his identity. This, according to the lawsuit, set off a chain of events that linked the teen to a series of other thefts committed by the shoplifter.
Couples going through a divorce in California may face a multitude of personal and financial challenges. These range from determining child custody to deciding who will take ownership of the family home.
Divorce is especially complicated when parents decide to go their separate ways. In addition to dividing your property, you and your spouse will also have to figure out child support and custody agreements. However, neither custody or child support orders cover visitation schedules. A judge will order a visitation schedule when you or your spouse does not have physical custody. There are also four different types of visitation. Do you know which kind is right for your family?
It’s the visit no parent wishes to receive. Child Protective Services (CPS) is at the door and wants to speak to you concerning your child. It’s reflexive to become defensive or fearful when this happens. Knowing how to respond appropriately when emotions are high can improve your chances for coming out on top in your case.
When California couples decide to divorce, the financial effects can be some of the most significant and long-lasting. The end of a marriage has a number of emotional and practical consequences, and it can be a grueling process on multiple levels. However, after the divorce is finalized, there can still be matters that need to be dealt with quickly in order to avoid further confusion and problems. This is especially true for changes to financial and other paperwork that can only be dealt with after the divorce has been handled in court.
When California residents are shopping in stores, they might expect to be seen on security cameras. Modern technology is enabling store owners to go one step further by recording and sharing images of shoppers in an effort to prevent theft. Facial recognition technology is hailed by some as a major breakthrough in crime prevention, but critics say that unrestricted use of the technology is an invasion of privacy.
California parents who are considering divorce should know that separating can be a very difficult process. Even after the divorce has been finalized, there are likely to be situations related to the kids that may be difficult to handle. However, the co-parenting relationship should be all about looking after the best interests of the children.
