A federal judge in Massachusetts is allowing a claim of the federal Video Privacy Protection Act to continue against media company Meredith Corp., known for such brands as Allrecipes.com and a recipe mobile application Dinner Spinner.

In the Feb. 1 decision, authored by U.S. District Judge Allison D. Burroughs of the District of Massachusetts, the court denied Meredith’s motion to dismiss the VPPA claim, but granted its motion to dismiss the state law claim.
