Bloomberg reports the Court of Appeal in London has overturned a ruling to throw out a 3.2 billion GBP class-action lawsuit of more than 4 million iPhone users against Google. The original suit alleges Google bypassed iPhone privacy settings to unlawfully obtain personal information. "This case, quite properly if the allegations are proved, seeks to call Google to account for its allegedly wholesale and deliberate misuse of personal data without consent, undertaken with a view to a commercial profit," Judge Geoffrey Vos said. Google intends to seek permission to send the case to the U.K.'s highest court of appeal. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
