A US$60 million lawsuit against Apple alleging the company spies on its customers through their laptops has been dismissed. The judge tossed out the lawsuit after the complainant failed to show any evidence to support the claims, according to Reuters.
The lawsuit was filed against Apple by Leslie Carr in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York alleging company employees were watching her online actions through her Mac laptop. “There would be a mass number of Apple employees waiting greedily like vultures to survey and monitor my life,” she said.
While Ms. Carr may have been certain Apple employees were spying on her, she failed to provide any evidence to support her claims. The complaint, according to U.S. District Court Judge Richard Berman, “fails to state a plausible claim for relief,” and presented “unrealistic and unsupportable claims.”
There’s no word yet on whether or not Ms. Carr plans to try to collect evidence supporting her claims.
