Google Wins Lawsuit Dismissal
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.October 10, 2013
Google has won the dismissal of a lawsuit that alleged it had violated computer users’ rights by slipping electronic cookies into their web browsers in the name of targeted advertising, Bloomberg reports. Consumers sued in federal court alleging Google tricked their browsers into accepting the cookies. But U.S. District Court Judge Sue Robinson said in her opinion that users “didn’t demonstrate that Google intercepted any ‘contents or meaning’” under California’s Invasion of Privacy Act, the report states.
