Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, filed a class action lawsuit on September 12, 2022, against Zillow Group, Inc. (“Zillow”) and Microsoft Corporation (“Microsoft”). The lawsuit alleges that Zillow and Microsoft have engaged in illegal wiretapping of electronic communications on the website www.zillow.com and all its subpages.
Subsequently, on January 18, 2023, the lawsuit was transferred to the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington. An amended complaint was filed on April 7, 2023, under the title “In Re: Zillow Group, Inc. Session Replay Software Litigation” (Master File No. 2:22-cv-01282-JLR). Recognizing their expertise, Scott+Scott has been appointed as co-lead counsel in this lawsuit, representing a nationwide class of individuals whose online electronic communications were purportedly violated under the Washington Privacy Act and Washington common law. Additionally, the plaintiffs also assert six additional claims on behalf of state-level subclasses, alleging violation of the Missouri Wiretap Act, the California Invasion of Privacy Act, and invasion of privacy under the common law of Illinois and Missouri.
