New York Attorney General Interrogates Madison Square Garden about Facial Recognition Technology


New York Attorney General Letitia James is requesting additional information from the Madison Square Garden Company about its use of a facial recognition system to prohibit legitimate ticket holders from visiting its seats.

Digital Music News reported at least three cases where lawyers were not allowed to visit venues owned by MSG. In the letter, A. G. James expresses concern that the ban on access to its sites due to the ongoing litigation against the company may violate local, state and federal human rights laws, including laws against reprisals.

The matter is being handled by Assistant Attorney General Kyle S. Rapinyan of the Civil Rights Bureau under the direction of Deputy Bureau Chief Travis England. The Civil Rights Bureau is part of the Social Justice Division, which is headed by Chief Deputy Attorney General Megan Foe and overseen by First Deputy Attorney General Jennifer Levy.
