• On June 12, 2012, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed several claims in the putative nationwide class action brought against Apple and various mobile-industry interests – including Google and AdMob – alleging violations of consumer privacy. The court dismissed with prejudice all claims brought against the “Mobile Industry Defendants,” namely Google, Admob, Flurry, AdMarval, and Medialets. The court also dismissed a host of statutory claims (e.g., Stored Communications Act and Wiretap Act) and common law claims (e.g., trespass, invasion of privacy, conversion, negligence, and unjust enrichment) against Apple, but retained two claims against Apple for violations of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act and the Unfair Competition Law. As the court explained, “Plaintiffs have a colorable argument that the terms of the privacy agreement were ambiguous[.]” In re iPhone Application Litigation, No. 11–MD–02250–LHK (N.D. Cal.).
