Federal Judge Denies Tech Workers" Class Action Against Apple, Google, Intel Corp, Adobe Systems, Pixar and LucasFilm

A federal judge has struck down an effort to form a class action lawsuit to go after Apple, Google, Intel Corp, Adobe Systems, Pixar and LucasFilm for allegedly forming an illegal cartel to suppress workers" wages and prevent the loss of their best engineers. US District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, issued a ruling on April 6, 2013 concluding the companies" alleged collusion may have affected workers in too many different ways to justify lumping the individual claims together. She denied the request to certify workers" lawsuits as a class action and collectively seek damages on behalf of tens of thousands of employees. The allegations will be more difficult to pursue if they can't be united in a single lawsuit. Koh, though, will allow the workers" lawyers to submit additional evidence to persuade her lawsuit merits class certification. Apple, Google and the other companies targeted in the lawsuit have been vigorously fighting the allegations. More is at stake than paying out damages to more than 100,000 workers. If the lawsuit proceeds, it could also expose secret discussions among prominent technology executives who entered into a "gentlemen’s agreement" not to poach employees working at their respective companies.
