Lloyd v Google – Court of Appeal Judgment holds that data breach claim can proceed as a representative action

The Court of Appeal, in a unanimous decision, overturned the Judgment of Mr Justice Warby dated 8 October 2018 which had refused Mishcon de Reya’s client, Richard Lloyd, permission to serve a representative action on Google LLC. The claim relates to what is known as the “Safari Workaround”- Google’s alleged unlawful and clandestine tracking of iPhone users in 2011 and 2012 without their consent through the use of third party cookies. Mr Lloyd seeks damages against Google LLC on behalf of a class of over 4 million iPhone users.
