Unanimous UK Supreme Court ruling provides big Google win and blocks Safari-tracking consumer class action

A longtime, widely-watched suit that claimed Google used a Safari workaround to override iPhone users’ privacy settings, has been decided on appeal in Google’s favor. The suit tried to establish that representative action could be brought in the UK for data protection violation and loss of control for an estimated 4 million users.  But the court determined specific damage/loss must be suffered to claim compensation.
