Apple may face court-ordered penalties in privacy lawsuit


Apple may face court-ordered penalties over its information-sharing practices in a privacy lawsuit, reports "Bloomberg" (http://tinyurl.com/btpe8uz).

U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal in San Jose, California, invited plaintiffs’ lawyers in the case to pursue sanctions against Apple after saying that the company’s document production “has more than doubled since the court got involved” in policing information-sharing obligations. The judge questioned Apple about e-mails or documents from employees that the company turned up only after the court ordered a review of its document-production process.

Apple lawyer Ashlie Beringer said Apple has made “Herculean efforts over the last two weeks” to rectify the problem, and that after another filing late last night, the company’s document production is complete, notes "Bloomberg."

In the lawsuit in question, Apple is accused of improperly collecting data on the locations of customers through iPhones, even after the device’s geo-location feature was turned off. The company is also accused of sharing personal information with third parties.
