Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit against Google, claiming the internet giant is violating state law by amassing facial and voice recognition data on Texans without their knowledge or consent.

The lawsuit claims Google apps and devices indefinitely store data on facial geometry and voiceprints from anyone they capture, whether they are Google users or not. The company does not expressly inform people or receive their consent, violating the Texas Capture or Use of Biometric Information Act, the lawsuit claims.

A Google spokesperson called the filing "another breathless lawsuit" from Paxton's office and said it misrepresents what the company's products do.
