Teen sues Apple for $1 billion

An 18-year-old from New York is suing Apple for US$1 billion (NZ$1.5 billion), claiming that a facial recognition system at its stores falsely connected him to a series of thefts.

Ousmane Bah, who was arrested at his home in November, alleges that the warrant he was served included a photo of someone else. The lawsuit also claims that a detective with the New York Police Department concluded that the thief caught by a store surveillance camera "looked nothing like" Bah.
