A class-action suit against an ISP that partnered with ad targeting company NebuAd back in 2008 has been dismissed by an Illinois federal judge, while Symantec is seeking a dismissal of an unrelated class-action, Law 360 reports. In the NebuAd-related case, U.S. District Judge Edmond E. Chang has ruled that ISP WideOpen West Finance LLC “faces no liability” under privacy laws.
