One of the many privacy battles Google has been fighting is a putative class action by Android users that challenges the change in Google’s privacy policies that allowed it to commingle data across different Google products and disclose the information to third parties for advertising purposes.  Google twice succeeded in knocking the plaintiffs’ out of court with a successful motion to dismiss, but each time the plaintiffs threw their hat back into the ring by filing an amended complaint.  Now, on their third complaint, the plaintiffs have had most of their claims dismissed again, this time with prejudice, meaning they cannot refile them.  However, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, in In re Google, Inc. Privacy Policy Litigation, allowed two claims to proceed to discovery ‒ breach of contract and violation of California’s Unfair Competition Law.  In the magistrate’s words, “Like Rocky rising from Apollo’s uppercut in the 14th round, Plaintiffs’ complaint has sustained much damage but just manages to stand.”  Google can only hope that the judge’s next opinion doesn’t analogize to “Rocky II,” in which the Italian Stallion wins by a knockout.
