Judge rejects $324.5 mln settlement over Apple, Google hiring
SAN FRANCISCO Aug 8 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Friday rejected a $324.5 million settlement between tech workers and companies including Apple and Google in a lawsuit accusing the companies of conspiring to avoid poaching each other's workers.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, said the proposed settlement amount "falls below the range of reasonableness." Intel and Adobe were also part of the deal. (Reporting by Dan Levine; Editing by Jonathan Oatis)
