Former Apple customer Adrienne Moore defected to Samsung and got herself a Galaxy S5. Judge Koh said that Moore had failed to receive ‘countless’ text messages sent to her from owners of Apple devices and because she no longer had Apple’s iMessage app she would never receive they messages. Judge Koh ruled on Monday that Moore could proceed with a claim against Apple for failing to disclose its company policy on devices that are not associated with its network.

Judge Koh was quoted as saying “The plaintiff has sufficiently alleged an injury-in-fact … to survive a motion to dismiss,” the judge wrote in her order. The plaintiff alleges that Apple’s interference with the receipt of her text messages deprived her of the full benefit of her contractual bargain with Verizon Wireless.”
