Updates on three legal matters/lawsuits involving Apple

Apple’s attorney have been working overtime this week, it seems. Following are updates on three Apple lawsuits and/or legal matters.

Law 360 reports that disgruntled “iPhone 6 owners suing Apple over alleged screen defects have dodged a bullet but may find themselves in a minefield soon,” after a California federal court denied the tech giant’s bid to kill class certification outright but also said they’re unlikely to clear that hurdle going forward.

Also, as noted by AppleInsider, U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup dismissed a class action suit against Apple  in the Northern Court of California. The lawsuit claimed that the tech giant unjustly profits from the aggregation and sale of iTunes and Apple Music user data.

Finally, the Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has agreed to pay about $467,000 to settle allegations it violated U.S. sanctions by dealing with a blacklisted entity for more than two years, the Treasury Department said Monday.
