A federal judge in Massachusetts last week denied CVS’s motion to dismiss part of a proposed class action complaint against it in which a job applicant accused the company of subjecting him and other interviewees to an artificial intelligence-powered lie detector test without proper notification.

Attorneys with Seyfarth Shaw, on behalf of CVS Health Corp., moved to dismiss the third count of the complaint brought by the plaintiff, Brendan Baker, who accused CVS of violating Massachusetts General Laws chapter 149, Section 19B, also known as the “Lie Detector Statute.” While CVS did not challenge the sufficiency of the claims that it violated the Lie Detector Statute, it moved to dismiss the count that it failed to provide Baker adequate notice of his statutory rights, according to an order filed Feb. 16 by U.S. District Judge Patti B. Saris.
