Philip A. Janquart reports:

Apple Inc. has filed a motion for summary judgment in a privacy class action lawsuit.

The suit claims the company accesses and tracks personal information through third-party iPhone applications without user permission.

[…]

Apple says the plaintiffs lack standing under Article III of the U.S. Constitution and under the UCL, and have no evidence of any material misrepresentations or nondisclosures.

In closing, Apple states in its motion that, “This lawsuit never should have been brought. There was never a factual basis for it, never a law broken, and never a person harmed. Discovery of the plaintiffs and their phones has definitively established that the facts plaintiffs invented to circumvent the court’s Sept. 20, 2011 order have no bases.”

I don’t know about you, but reading their motion for summary judgement, I’d say Apple makes a really strong case.
