Plaintiffs reply to Path, Apple, urge class certification

May 5, 2016 – Plaintiffs filed papers today replying to app developer Path and app distributor Apple, urging that their claims of breach of privacy against Path and Apple be certified for class treatment on behalf of approximately 480,000 iDevice users who downloaded or installed versions of the Path app that surreptitiously uploaded address book data from those users’ iDevices.  Installation of that app on those users’ iDevices resulted in the uploading of over 662 million pieces of information which Path held on a database and, the lawsuit contends, intended to use for data-mining, among other things.  The court has set a June 14th hearing to consider the class certification of plaintiffs’ claims.
