Judge tentatively approves settlement in anti-poaching suit against Apple, others

From the Associated Press:

Koh said she was satisfied this week after the companies increased their earlier offer of $324.5 million. She invited final comments on the deal before she grants final approval at a hearing on June 9.

The class action suit was filed against a number of tech giants including Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe, alleging they made agreements to not hire eachother's employees, potentially driving down wages for Silicon Valley workers.

This tentative approval comes after Judge Koh rejected a $324 million settlement last year after one plaintiff objected to the proposed amount.
