In March 2015, a federal judge, after considering a motion to dismiss and granting part of it, allowed false advertising claims to move forward in a class-action lawsuit filed against various marketers of Apple’s iDevices (i.e., iPhones, iPads, and iPods). The complaint alleges, among other things, that the marketing campaign misleadingly represented iDevices as secure and that personal information stored on them could not be taken without the owner’s consent when, in reality, the iDevices were not as secure as the marketing represented.
