A federal district court judge has ruled against dismissal of a class-action lawsuit involving application developers' use of iPhone address books and photos. New Jersey plaintiff Maria Pirozzi argued Apple misrepresented its App Store policies with the claim her iPhone would "run in a safe environment," and U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar granted her standing. "Apple claimed that apps could not access data from other apps, and, according to the Second Amended Complaint, in actuality, they can and have," Tigar's ruling said.
