The Supreme Court has dismissed Google’s case over iPhone data
Google has won two major legal battles over allegations that it illegally acquired personal data from millions of iPhone users.
Between 2011 and 2012, Richard Lloyd, an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter, sued Google for collecting web browsing data from iPhone users.
Lord Leggatt stated that he rejects these grounds and believes the claim will fail.
Lloyd failed to substantiate his claims against Google, thus Leggatt dismissed the mass lawsuit.
This claim was allegedly related to incidents that occurred a decade ago and which we addressed at the time.
“People want to know that they are safe and secure online, which is why for years we’ve focused on building products and infrastructure that respect and protect people’s privacy,” the spokesperson added.
Mr. Lloyd expressed his disappointment that the Supreme Court had done insufficient to safeguard the people from Google and other large internet companies that flout the law.
He went on to say that, despite the fact that the court has previously acknowledged that their action is the only practicable option for millions of British people to obtain equitable restitution, they had now closed the door on this case by declaring that everyone affected must go to court individually.
