The UK’s Supreme Court has rejected a lawsuit seeking billions of pounds (up to GBP750 per iPhone user) in compensation from Google for allegedly illegally tracking millions of iPhone users. According to the judge, the plaintiff had failed to prove that the individuals had been harmed by the data collection. However, he did not rule out the possibility of future class action cases if the damage could be calculated.

The plaintiff, Mr. Richard Lloyd, said: “We are bitterly disappointed that the Supreme Court has failed to do enough to protect the public from Google and other big tech firms who break the law.” He called on the government to step in to make it easier for groups of consumers to act over data breaches.
