CASE ENTRY

In re: Google Inc. Cookie Placement Consumer Privacy Litigation

To settle a class action alleging a Google cookie invaded users’ privacy, Google agrees to stop using the cookie, pay $5.5 mil to the plaintiffs’ attorneys and data privacy organizations. Not a penny goes to class members. Third Circuit: It might be OK for a class action to give money only to third parties and not to class members, but the district court’s analysis in this case was half baked.
