09 Nov Privacy Violation Case Against Viacom Dropped by Children’s Lawyers
A privacy lawsuit against Viacom has recently been dropped, according to court papers filed last Friday.
The long-running case was filed way back in 2012 when the media company, along with Google, was accused of violating the Video Privacy Protection Act for tracking the activity of children using cookies on Nick.com and other sites.
The case was initially thrown out by U.S. District Court Judge Stanley Chesler in New Jersey, but was overturned by a three-judge panel of the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals. It was not revealed if the lawyers had agreed to a cash settlement for the withdrawal of the case.
