Google must face justice in UK for Apple Safari privacy failings, rules High Court


From V3:
The firm had attempted to move the case, which started in 2012, to California. But judge Justice Tugendhat at the High Court in London said that the UK courts had "appropriate jurisdiction" to conduct the case.

The case – which has already cost Google nearly $40m after settlements with 38 US states and the US Federal Trade Commission – focuses on whether it deliberately bypassed privacy settings available in Apple's Safari browser by using cookies to present targeted advertisements.
