Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
There is no law that would prohibit the bank from doing this (or any other business) - many banks and other institutions (employers, landlords, etc.) will require copies of photo identification as a means of loss prevention.
No, I cannot reference a rule or statute to prove a negative. I am sorry.
If you are asking me to confirm that a bank can photocopy your ID - yes, I can do that.
If you are asking me to confirm a very broad statement that unless an act is specifically prohibited by a code or statute, it is legal, I cannot do that, the way our legal system works is a little too complex for me to make that type of overly broad statement (only one part of this answer is because we live in a "Common Law" jurisdiction as opposed to a statutory law (such as Louisiana's civil law, and most of Europe)).
