The informant’s job is to help you figure out who’s behind your favorite website, and that’s what’s been happening at one of the nation’s largest private tech firms.
A new federal class action lawsuit alleges that the company’s informant program is akin to torture.
The class action is being filed in the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, New York, on behalf of an unnamed individual and others.
According to the complaint, the informant program involves a company called Techsco, which makes a wide range of software and services for businesses and government agencies, including information technology jobs.
The company provides confidential data to law enforcement and other government agencies and is used to gather information about Internet users who have engaged in criminal activity, according to the lawsuit.
The software company claims that the software helps it determine who’s responsible for the criminal activity of its customers.
The software can help law enforcement track down suspects and locate them, the lawsuit alleges.
According the lawsuit, the program was used by the FBI to track down and arrest suspects and collect evidence during the 2016 New York City riots.
The company is also a defendant in two civil rights lawsuits that were brought against Techscoe and other tech firms for using the software to track and arrest protesters.
In a statement, TechsCo said it had nothing to do with the class action, which it called an attempt to smear the company.
“We have been a valued member of the tech community for decades and are committed to serving the public in a way that is both transparent and safe,” the statement said.
“We remain confident that our technology and our customers are safe.”
The complaint also alleges that Techscos software has helped the FBI track down alleged child sex offenders.
It’s unclear what the alleged sex offenders’ real names are.
The complaint also says that the FBI and Techscos software provider failed to report that it had used the software, in violation of a court order that requires companies to report their software to the government.
Techsco did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In addition to the class actions filed Tuesday, Techspoc is also facing a lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in federal court in Brooklyn.
The ACLU filed a separate lawsuit on Tuesday against Techspo, saying that the informant software violated a federal civil rights law.
The lawsuit seeks class certification and damages for the civil rights violation.
