Judge Grewal rips Apple for failure to produce documents in the Apple iPhone privacy case

doesn’t sound like you did a lick of work," when she was supposed to double check workers to make sure that the papers they withheld from the court were not subject to the discovery process. Beringer said that it was her mistake and she did not ask the right questions to determine which papers should have been collected by her and submitted to the court. The attorney said, "Absolutely that was a failure of management on my part, one that won’t happen again."
Apple is accused of collecting location data through the Apple iPhone even after the geo-location feature was turned off. The company purportedly sold this information to third parties. The plaintiffs seek class-action status which Apple is fighting. Apple says that because the plaintiffs can't show that their personal data was taken without consent, they cannot prove that they were harmed and thus class-action status should be denied.

This is going to get very bad for Apple, very soon. If they do not do what is being requested, it will only be a matter of time before the FTC gets involved.

It won't even get to the FTC. If Apple's attorneys piss off the judges enough, Judge Koh will just certify class action status and Apple will be f*cked. Right now, Apple hasn't proven there is no reason to deny class action status, and the judges are not exactly happy campers. Not a good place for Apple to be.

Why would one of the richest companies need to sell your location data? Are they that greedy? It was bad enough they collected it when it was supposed to be turned off, but selling it was over the top.

That was a dumb ass move on Apples part. That just tells you something is up with them. God I hate Apple, for the love of god if there ever is one somewhere, please hear my prayer an strike them with your almighty awesomeness power. It will do everyone a favor.
