Google Defeats Most Claims In Browser Tracking Lawsuit

A U.S. appeals court upheld the dismissal of a proposed class action lawsuit against Google over browser tracking.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia on Tuesday rejected claims in a proposed class action lawsuit that Google violated federal wiretap and computer fraud laws by exploiting loopholes in Apple Inc's Safari browser and Microsoft Corp's Internet Explorer browser. Four computer users accused the Mountain View, California-based unit of Alphabet Inc of bypassing their cookie blockers, helping advertisers target potential customers.
