What was the basis for the dismissal?
Readers should be aware however, that the disclosure of personal information was not endorsed by the Google court. In fact, the judge noted a recent Ninth Circuit decision in which a complaint against Facebook was permitted to survive where the plaintiffs had alleged that they were harmed by the dissemination of their personal information and by losing the sales value of that information. However, the Google Court distinguished the Facebook case, and ultimately dismissed the Complaint against Google, as a result of the Android users’ failure to actually plead any injury-in-fact or actual harm, as the Facebook users had.
