The Court of Appeal (Dame Victoria Sharp, President of the Queen’s Bench Division, Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court, and Lord Justice Davis) have handed down judgment in Lloyd v Google. Mr Lloyd seeks to represent a class of more than 4 million iPhone users, whose internet browsing Google secretly tracked under the “Safari Workaround”. Reversing the decision of Warby J, the Court of Appeal unanimously held that:
Subject to any grant of permission to appeal to the Supreme Court, the claim will now be served out of the jurisdiction on Google and proceed to trial.
The judgment is here.
Victoria Wakefield QC, instructed by Mishcon de Reya LLP, appeared for Mr Lloyd.
