Judge Has 'Concerns' About Tech Hiring Settlement

A U.S. judge said she had concerns about approving a $324.5 million settlement involving Apple, Google and two other tech companies where they were accused of conspiring to avoid poaching each other's workers. Tech workers filed a class action lawsuit against Apple Inc., Google Inc., Intel Inc. and Adobe Systems Inc. in 2011, alleging they conspired to refrain from soliciting one another's employees in order to avert a salary war.
