Mealey's (July 11, 2016, 3:02 PM EDT) -- SAN JOSE, Calif. — In a brief filed July 6 in California federal court, a group of more than 700 university student plaintiffs oppose a motion by Google Inc. to sever and dismiss their claims alleging violation of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) by the interception and scanning of their emails, arguing that joinder is “fundamentally fair and judicially efficient” (Ryan Corley, et al. v. Google Inc., No. 5:16-cv-00473, N.D. Calif.).
