[Post by Venkat Balasubramani]

Fraley v. Facebook, Inc., C 11-1726 RS (N.D. Cal. Aug. 26, 2013) (Digital Media Law Project’s page for the case) (Access a copy of the amended settlement agreement here: [pdf].)

Judge Seeborg initially rejected the proposed settlement of claims over Facebook’s “Sponsored Stories” program for several reasons, including the fact the class was not scheduled to receive any money in payouts. (Previous post here.) The parties went back and reconfigured the settlement, which Judge Seeborg preliminarily approved. After notifying the class about the settlement, Judge Seeborg has now granted final approval of the settlement.
