California: Delta wins in mobile app case

In December 2012, the California Attorney General filed a lawsuit against Delta Airlines alleging that Delta violated California’s Online Privacy Protection Act by failing to post a privacy policy within its Fly Delta mobile app. On May 9, 2013 the California Superior Court dismissed the claim, holding that the state action is pre-empted by the federal Airline Deregulation Act, which prohibits states from applying regulations on airlines related to price, routes, or services.Case details: People of the State of California v. Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL), CGC-12-526741, Superior Court of California, San Francisco County (San Francisco)
