Google refuses to address British court concerning privacy claims

A group claim was issued by several UK citizens against Google for violating their rights to online privacy. The citizens are accusing Google for secretly tracking their behavior on the Safari web browser by bypassing security features. Google however, is arguing that the claims don’t meet the standards to be evaluated at the London court.

The company had a similar case brought up in the US several months ago which ended up being dismissed by the government. It appears as though Google would like the UK citizens to file a claim in the US since it will most likely have a similar result. Claimants have described the company’s reaction to the lawsuit as “arrogant” and “immoral”.
