An Apple Store in New York has been forced to close due to the results of a class action lawsuit filed by former employees who claimed that the company was racially profiling job applicants. The store, located in Brooklyn, New York, had allegedly been hiring only white employees and rejecting African American and Hispanic applicants solely on the basis of their skin color. In response to the suit, Apple has closed down the store entirely as it conducts an internal investigation into the matter, though it will remain open until all current employees have found new positions with other companies, as part of Apple’s policy on redundancy.

Apple Employees Secretly Searched Computers of Customers
A class action lawsuit has forced Apple to close its doors after it was revealed that employees had been secretly searching the computers of customers. The lawsuit claimed that the searches were conducted without a warrant or probable cause, and that the employees did not have the consent of the customers. Apple has not commented on the lawsuit, but it is clear that this is a major blow to the company’s reputation. If the allegations are true, then it also begs the question of what other violations may be taking place within the store. It’s hard to imagine that such an innovative company would violate people’s privacy in such a blatant way.
Employees Stole Intellectual Property
Employees at the Apple Store were caught stealing intellectual property from the company. The class action lawsuit was filed against the store, and they were forced to close their doors. This is a major setback for the company, as they have lost a valuable source of income. The employees who stole the intellectual property will be facing severe penalties.
This incident highlights the importance of protecting your intellectual property. If you work with any kind of digital media, it is important that you protect it by using passwords and encryption software. You should also make sure that only those with authorization are able to access the files on your computer or mobile device.
Appeals Court Rules Against Apple
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that Apple Store employees can continue with a class action lawsuit against the company over claims that it conducted warrantless searches of their bags and personal electronic devices. The decision was issued on Monday, upholding a lower court’s ruling from last year. Apple had appealed the case, arguing that the searches were necessary to prevent theft and that they were conducted in a manner that was minimally intrusive. In today’s digital world, people carry around sensitive information in their pockets and purses – the contents of which should be protected from arbitrary search, Judge M. Margaret McKeown wrote for the three-judge panel that heard arguments this past December. When we use an ATM machine or go through airport security screening, we understand that we may need to submit to an inspection but not one that involves invasive probing into our private lives.
Apple Wins Supreme Court Case
The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Apple, upholding the dismissal of a class action lawsuit that claimed the company was liable for employee searches. The case stemmed from an incident in 2013, when an Apple Store employee was caught stealing merchandise. The employee’s bag was searched by a store manager, who found and turned over to police a laptop that contained child pornography.
The customer sued, claiming the search violated his Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure. In its ruling today, the Supreme Court determined that this incident did not warrant class-action status because it involved only one person out of potentially thousands or more customers subjected to similar inspections.
The Apple Store is being forced to close its doors due to a class action lawsuit that was filed against them. The lawsuit claimed that the store’s employees were conducting searches on customers without their consent. Apple has not yet commented on the case, but it is expected that they will be appealing the decision. In the meantime, the store will be closed until further notice. Customers are urged to call ahead and make sure that their desired products are in stock before driving over. With all of the upcoming holidays coming up, this may prove difficult for many people who do not have another Apple Store nearby. Some customers believe that this lawsuit is just an excuse for the company to promote its new retail strategy which favors online shopping and service over in-store purchases.
Excerpt from Press Release
A class action lawsuit was filed against Apple Inc. today, alleging that the company’s retail store employees were routinely subjected to illegal searches of their bags and personal electronic devices. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and an injunction barring Apple from continuing the practice.
