However, the judge closed the case on the grounds that no specific injuries were suffered and that Facebook did not violate any wiretap or computer fraud laws.
"Here, in regard to damages, plaintiffs allege only that as a result of the alleged breach of contract, plaintiffs 'suffered injury,'" Judge James Ware wrote. "However, plaintiffs fail to allege any actual damages in their complaint. Thus, under California law plaintiffs fail to state a claim for breach of contract."
All eight complaints were thrown out, though Ware gave men the chance to bring parts of the case back up if they could provide more specific allegations.
In a separate incident, security firm Symantec recently showed that some 100,000 apps on Facebook could have been providing third parties a way to access user information over a period of several years.
