Second Circuit allows Google to appeal class certification in author’s case

August 29, 2012 by

The Second Circuit on Tuesday said Google Inc. could file an appeal challenging a judge’s decision granting class certification to thousands of authors who claim Google Inc.’s plan to digitize millions of books violates U.S. copyright law.  In a short notice, the appeals court granted Google’s motion for leave to file an appeal of U.S. Circuit Judge Denny Chin’s May 31 decision, which rejected the search giant’s argument that the writers should have litigated their copyright claims individually.
