Apple, others face anti-poaching class-action lawsuit

Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe must face an anti-poaching class-action lawsuit representing more than 64,000 employees, Bloomberg reports. The employees claim their incomes were restricted by the companies agreeing not to recruit each other’s workers. According to the ruling of U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, the suit represents technical employees, including software and hardware engineers, programmers, and web developers, among others. The original lawsuit from 2011 also included Intuit, Lucasfilm, and Pixar; those companies settled out of court.
