The lawsuit has one named plaintiff, Keile Allen of Miami-Dade County, who allegedly used an Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPod and iPad to perform Web searches using Google via Safari software.

The local suit is one of several proposed class actions filed against Google afterThe Wall Street Journal broke a story Feb. 16 about Google and other advertising companies bypassing the privacy settings of millions of people on iPhones and computers to track Web-browsing habits. Stanford University researcherJonathan Mayer spotted the Google code.
