Several organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Digital Democracy, and others filed the class action lawsuit against Google. The case is still in progress, with the courts grappling with the issue of whether the plaintiffs suffered harm. A Chicago federal judge recently ruled that, while violations of BIPA law caused plaintiffs to feel aggrieved, these violations do not provide standing to file a class-action lawsuit. In light of this decision, plaintiffs are urged to revisit their arguments.

There is a history of lawsuits against Google, including the case brought by Max Mosley. This case was filed after he was photographed with a prostitute while using a Gmail account. The decision was upheld in the Supreme Court, with Mosley receiving PS60,000 in damages. Plaintiffs in Google class action lawsuits are usually categorized by their location. Some of these claims have a complex legal history.


The District of Columbia and three other states have filed a class-action lawsuit against Google for misguiding consumers regarding their privacy and location data. The states allege that Google misled consumers to provide more location data than was legal. They also claim that Google misled users into thinking their data was safe when they altered their privacy settings, which violates consumer protection laws. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that Google’s actions and policies impeded competition in the search and advertising sectors.

In Maryland, a class action lawsuit has been filed against Google. One of the lawyers representing the plaintiffs is the Michael Slocumb Law Firm. The firm recently represented Maryland resident Matthew C. Knowles, who was interviewed by CBS News. Mr. Knowles is suing Google after the company illegally intercepted his private emails. Similarly, many Maryland residents have filed a class-action lawsuit against Google for misappropriating personal information.

Settlement amount

Google has agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit against the company. It is expected to pay $7.5 million in June 2020. The company lost half the money to administrative and legal costs. Nonetheless, the payout amounts to roughly $2.15 per person. Ars Managing Editor Eric Bangeman, for instance, received a windfall yesterday. The settlement amount was not made public until the case was remanded to Cook County Circuit Court Judge Anna Loftus on April 14.

The settlement amount will be paid to affected users. If the claim is approved, each claimant will receive $5. If the settlement funds are insufficient, the payout amount can be reduced to up to $12. As long as each claimant fills out a valid claim form, Google will payout. However, if the number of claimants exceeds the settlement fund, a portion of the money will be withheld.

Class-action status

In the last year, two purported class members and some state attorneys general objected to a Google data settlement. A federal judge approved the settlement in May 2018, but the objector, David Lowery, appealed. He argued that it was not economically viable to pay all class members. The appeals court agreed, and Monday’s decision affirms Breyer’s decision. In the ruling, the court rejected Google’s request to remove two positions from the litigation.

The Google class-action lawsuit case continues to be a hot topic in the courtroom, as courts have wrestled with whether or not plaintiffs suffered harm from Google’s behavior. A federal judge in Chicago recently decided that violations of the BIPA law only left plaintiffs feeling aggrieved, and therefore they did not have the standing to file a class-action lawsuit against Google. In addition, the U.S. Supreme Court has said that plaintiffs must show a concrete injury to qualify for a lawsuit against Google.
