The Northern District of California recently dismissed with prejudice a putative class action lawsuit against Google, which alleged that the company used a secret program called “Android Lockbox” to spy on Android smartphone users. See Order Granting Motion to Dismiss, Hammerling v. Google LLC, No. 21-cv-09004-CRB (N.D. Cal. December 1, 2022). The Court previously dismissed the case in July and gave plaintiffs leave to amend, but signaled that the complaint’s deficiencies would be “difficult to cure.” Finding that plaintiffs had failed to cure the previous deficiencies, the court dismissed with prejudice on all ten claims.
