Apple iMessage Class Action

The Honorable Lucy H. Koh, U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of California, today entered an order appointing Roy A. Katriel of The Katriel Law Firm as Interim Class Counsel in the class action case styled as Moore v. Apple Inc., No. 14-cv-2269-LHK.  This class action alleges that Apple’s iMessage application caused text messages to be undelivered when sent to former Apple users who had switched their iPhones to a non-Apple device.  The complaint alleges that Apple is liable for tortuously interfering with class members’ contracts with their wireless service providers, which entitled them to receive text messages, and is also liable for violating California’s Unfair Competition Law.  The Court previously upheld these claims of the Class Action Complaint filed by The Katriel Law Firm.  The plaintiff seeks to represent a class of all former users nationwide of an Apple iPhone or iPad device who swiched to a non-Apple device.
