Google cannot escape location privacy lawsuit in Arizona, judge rules
Jan 25 (Reuters) - Allegations that Alphabet Inc's Google deceived users with unclear smartphone location tracking settings should be weighed by a jury, an Arizona judge ruled on Tuesday, refusing to toss out a lawsuit brought by the state's attorney general.
Google had sought summary judgment to get the case against it thrown out at an early stage. It had argued that the state had failed to show that its consumer fraud law could apply and noted that the company's disclosures about privacy settings has been clarified since the case was brought nearly two years ago.
The decision comes a day after attorneys general in Washington state, Indiana, Texas and the District of Columbia sued Google on similar grounds as the Arizona case.
Under Judge Timothy Thomason's ruling in Arizona, the state can proceed with claims that Google may have engaged in deceptive practices in failing to disclose its location tracking capabilities to phone buyers and app users.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich called the ruling a "great win for Arizona consumers."
The action revolves around the fact that users of smartphones running Google's Android operating system who disable a Location History feature to limit tracking still had their location saved to their Google account through another setting, Web App and Activity.
Prosecutors and Google have sparred over whether users realized they needed to disable both settings to keep Google from following their physical movements.
Arizona prosecutors also had sought an early judgment in their favor, but the judge last year rejected its bid.
The Federal Court in Australia in April found in a similar case that Google had misled consumers. Penalties are yet to be determined.
GOOG and MSFT: the two strongest companies in the investosphere. Long and strong for a great ride into the future.
Cathie and Tesla's fans, $googl is growing 29% per year.
Net margin 31% projected EPS $115/share. With Buybacks, 6 years from now Google would be $8470/share.
I shorted at $2645 will cover at $2500 right at the Fed communication.
Anyone know what day and time Alphabet is reporting 2022 Q4 revenue results?
Fun fact: For real, I went to high school with Larry Page co-founder of Google in Michigan. East Lansing High School class of 1991. Should've gotten to know him better haha
GOOG earnings will be a blowout quarter
