Facebook Scores Initial Win Against Privacy Plaintiffs Over Data Leakage Claims

Quote:
There are so many recent privacy class actions out there, it's become tough to keep track of them all. One of the early lawsuits against Facebook was consolidated in the Northern District of California, in front of Judge Ware. In an order issued yesterday, Judge Ware granted Facebook's motion to dismiss the complaint. Although he granted leave to amend on certain counts, he certainly expressed some skepticism about the overall merits of the case.

As the court summarizes them, the facts boil down to Facebook's transmission to third-party advertisers of the user ID or "username" of Facebook users who clicked on advertisements. This started "no later than February 2010 and ... continued until May 21, 2010." The transmission of this information forms the basis of putative class action claims for violations of the Stored Communications Act and the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, California's anti-hacking law, and a slew of state law claims.
