Plaintiffs reply to Apple, urge class certification
May 5, 2017 – Plaintiffs filed papers today replying to App Store proprietor Apple, urging that their claims of false advertising be certified for class treatment on behalf of several million consumers nationwide who bought various versions of the iPhone and iPad whose operating systems allowed the surreptitious upload of address book data from those users’ iDevices. Plaintiffs contend that Apple’s insistent messaging of concern for users’ “privacy” and “security” in their personal contact data was false, that its products were tainted, and that consumers were misled and as a result overpaid for those devices. Federal district court judge Jon S. Tigar has set a May 31st hearing on the matter. For more information about the case, click here.
