Apple's legal battle against dozens of iPhone slowdown lawsuits will take place in a courtroom in California, near its headquarters.
There are 61 lawsuits going on about Apple slowing down older iPhones. Apple claims they do this to protect the battery health and performance.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation today disclosed it has ordered [PDF] all iPhone slowdown lawsuits to be transferred to the U.S. District Court for Northern California and, with the consent of that court, assigned to the Honorable Judge Edward J. Davila for consolidated pretrial proceedings.
More than half of the 61 lawsuits—and counting—were filed in the Northern District of California to begin with, so centralization of the remaining complaints filed in other states should help to streamline the legal process.
