Facebook is facing exposure to billions of dollars in potential damages as a federal appeals court on Thursday rejected Facebook’s arguments to halt a class action lawsuit claiming it illegally collected and stored the biometric data of millions of users.

The action contains upwards of 7m plaintiffs ... so any judgement (should it happen) will not be chump change.
