Judge Dismisses Class Action Against LinkedIn
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.July 18, 2012
A federal judge has dismissed a class-action lawsuit against LinkedIn for alleged violations of the Stored Communications Act (SCA), COMPUTERWORLD reports. District Judge Lucy Koh of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California rejected the allegations, saying the act creates liability only for remote computing services and electronic communication services. “LinkedIn is neither and therefore did not violate the SCA,” Koh wrote in her 27-page decision.
