Apple gets off scot-free as judge dismisses privacy lawsuit

Apple Privacy Lawsuit Dismissed

If there’s anyone who deserves a nice Christmas gift basket from Apple this year, it’s probably U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh. The judge presided over Apple’s patent suit against Samsung in which Apple was awarded damages that total nearly $1 billion, and now Koh has dismissed a separate case against Apple that could have cost the company a good chunk of change. Reuters reports that Koh dismissed a suit on Monday in which four plaintiffs claimed Apple had violated its own privacy policy by transmitting private data to third parties without users’ consent. They also claimed that they “suffered damages by paying too much money for their iPhones and by losing storage space, among other things,” the report said. The case was one of the consolidated litigation consisting of 19 lawsuits that judge Koh is currently presiding over.
