Judge dismisses ‘whistleblower lawsuit’ against Apple

A California federal judge on Tuesday nixed a whistleblower’s suit accusing Apple of bringing two trainers from India into the country using B-1 visas instead of the more expensive and necessary H1-B visas, ruling there’s “no exhaustive list or case law of all permissible activities” under the B-1, reports Law360.

Judge Lucy Koh dismissed the lawsuit against the tech giant that alleged it abused the visa system to save money by bringing Indian contractors to the U.S. under the wrong visa program. (You can find an in-depth look at visas here.)

In other legal news, Apple and Qualcomm took dueling positions Tuesday on whether the jury in their upcoming multibillion-dollar antitrust trial should render advisory opinions on some issues, with Apple saying it will increase efficiency and Qualcomm calling it a needless burden on jurors.
