App Suit Complainant Files Again
MOBILE PRIVACY—U.S.February 1, 2013
A New Jersey resident has filed a second, more detailed complaint against Apple, claiming that it violated her privacy by allowing app developers to access information held on her iPhone, reports MediaPost News. Maria Pirozzi filed a case last year that was dismissed by U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers in December. In the ruling, Rogers granted Pirozzi the opportunity to add more allegations and file again. Pirozzi alleges that she "relied on Apple's reputation for safety," adding that had she known iPhones were designed to be “vulnerable to unauthorized access from third-party apps,” she wouldn’t have downloaded apps and therefore would have paid less for her phone.
