In re Apple In-App Purchase Litigation

Case # 11-cv-01758
Case Name In re Apple In-App Purchase Litigation
Jurisdiction US District Court for N.D. CA
Summary

Plaintiffs allege that Apple improperly allowed minors to make in-app purchases without parental consent or oversight.  Games for children that were free to download included in game options to purchase additional items for in game use.  The mechanism to purchase these items often did not require any sort of adult approval, which allowed minor children to unwittingly run up charges without their parents or guardians being aware that purchases were being made.  These charges could be up to $99.99 for a single purchase.

Final Approval Date 10/18/2013
