Use of Algorithmic Video Surveillance System in Public Spaces Sanctioned by the Administrative Court of Caen - McDermott Will & Emery

Use of Algorithmic Video Surveillance System in Public Spaces Sanctioned by the Administrative Court of Caen

Overview


In an order dated November 22, 2023, the référé-liberté judge of the administrative court of Caen ordered the communauté de communes Coeur Côte Fleurie to stop using an “augmented” camera system insofar as it is coupled with algorithmic video surveillance software. Based on the position of the Commission nationale de l’informatique et Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL), the judge recalled that the use of such a system, outside any legal or regulatory framework, constitutes a breach of privacy.
