NEW YORK – interclick, inc. (Nasdaq:ICLK) announced that the sole remaining federal claim alleging violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and the state law claims for breach of implied contract and tortious interference have all been dismissed with prejudice by the United States District Court after determining the plaintiff had no legal basis to support her claim. The plaintiff and her counsel may not re-file those claims.
In December of 2010, Sonal Bose filed a lawsuit, seeking class action status, against interclick, Inc. alleging that interclick’s online advertising practices violated numerous state and federal acts. On August 17, 2011, ruling on interclick’s motion to dismiss, the Court granted the dismissal of the above claims with prejudice. This follows the March 21, 2011 decision by the plaintiff to voluntarily withdraw her claim that interclick had violated the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.
The Court also dismissed all claims against the advertiser defendants with prejudice.
“As we have said from the beginning, interclick has always taken consumer privacy very seriously and these claims were brought without merit. We are pleased that the central claims in the litigation have been dismissed by The United States District Court,” said Michael Katz, CEO of interclick.
