Google Sued Over Children's In-App Purchases

A mother from New York, that coincidentally also happens to be an attorney, has filed suit against Google over the lack of safeguards to prevent in-app purchases by children.

Ilana Imber-Gluck, who lives with her 4- and 5 year-old sons in New York, is the one named plaintiff in the suit. The complaint alleges Imber-Gluck incurred $65.95 in charges from the Google Play store for unauthorized purchases her children made playing the game Marvel Run Jump Smash! on her Samsung Galaxy tablet.
