Apple argues against data tracking case going class action
Apple has asked US District Judge Lucy Koh to block a motion to turn an iPhone and iPad location tracking lawsuit into a class action, <em>Bloomberg</em> reports. The company says that the plaintiffs haven't shown that any personal information was collected by apps, and hence that any harm was caused. On top of this Apple <a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-02-28/apple-argues-suit-over-iphone-data-fails-to-show-harm.html">alleges</a> that the plaintiffs' lawyers have abandoned damage claims because they can't show any injury, and are just trying to recover legal fees.<br /><br />In 2011 the company came under intense legal and political scrutiny when it was discovered that iOS 4 was keeping lengthy histories of users' travels. While Apple eventually patched iOS to eliminate the issue, it was still hit with a number of lawsuits, and has in fact <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/280179==http://www.macnn.com/articles/11/07/14/company.could.face.korean.class.action.suit/" rel='nofollow'>had to pay damages</a>.
