Firm moves for class certification against Apple, Path in breach of privacy case
November 12, 2015 – Plaintiffs Jason Green, Stephanie Cooley and Lauren Carter today moved on their own and on behalf of a group of iDevice users for certification of a class of approximately 480,000 users on their claim against app developer Path for invasion of privacy and against Apple for aiding and abetting same. Plaintiffs’ claims arise from technology built into several versions of the iOS mobile Path app which, upon activation, uploaded users’ address book data without notice. Today’s motion follows a Oct. 8th court order directing Path to produce both its CEO, Dave Morin, and its CTO, Nathan Folkman, for a sworn deposition. Those depositions are pending. The court has set the hearing on plaintiffs’ class certification motion for Dec. 17th.
