MediaPost reports AT&T has filed a motion with the U.S. District Court in Maryland to have a lawsuit regarding geolocation data disclosure sent to arbitration. Just as T-Mobile did last week with a class-action suit on location privacy, AT&T said in its motion that the claim filed by the plaintiff is covered in the arbitration agreement found in the phone carrier's user contracts. "That provision states that it 'is intended to be broadly interpreted,' and requires arbitration of 'all disputes and claims between us,'" the company said. "That language easily encompasses the single claim at issue here, which alleges that AT&T improperly disseminates customers’ data to third parties in violation of the Federal Communications Act."
