Judge dismisses privacy lawsuit against JetBlue for lack of harm

On Friday, a US District Court Judge dismissed a class-action lawsuit brought against JetBlue, Acxiom and two defence department subcontractors. The airline, JetBlue, had provided detailed passenger information which was matched with data from Acxiom to the subcontractors, contrary to the arline's privacy policy. According to the Associated Press, the case was thrown out because the plaintiffs could not show any actual harm or any actual benefit to JetBlue.
