Case Summary

This case involves the use of Facial Recognition Technology (“FRT”) by the Detroit Police Department (“DPD”). The plaintiff, a Black individual, represented by the ACLU of Michigan and the University of Michigan's Civil Rights Litigation Initiative, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on April 13, 2021. The plaintiff sued the City of Detroit (“City”), the DPD Chief, and an individual DPD detective under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. He alleged that the DPD used a blur…

This case involves the use of Facial Recognition Technology (“FRT”) by the Detroit Police Department (“DPD”). The plaintiff, a Black individual, represented by the ACLU of Michigan and the University of Michigan's Civil Rights Litigation Initiative, filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan on April 13, 2021. The plaintiff sued the City of Detroit (“City”), the DPD Chief, and an individual DPD detective under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. He alleged that the DPD used a blurry FRT image to identify him as a shoplifter in 2018 and that the use of FRT led the DPD to wrongfully arrest and detain him for thirty hours. 

The complaint alleged that the wrongful arrest and imprisonment violated the plaintiff’s Fourth Amendment rights and Michigan state law, and that the City failed to properly train DPD officers about the deficiencies of FRT. Because FRT misidentifies Black people at disproportionately high rates, the plaintiff further alleged that DPD violated Michigan’s racial discrimination statute. He sought damages, attorneys’ fees, and declaratory and injunctive relief. The case was assigned to District Judge Laurie J. Michelson and Magistrate Judge David R. Grand. 

The court dealt with discovery issues from July 2021 until July 2023, and Magistrate Judge Grand held a status conference on July 10. The plaintiffs additionally filed an amended complaint on June 23. The case is ongoing as of November 18, 2023.
