A Chicago judge on Monday said Yahoo must face a class action lawsuit for sending unsolicited text messages to Sprint customers in 2013. The company was sued by customers who felt automated "welcome" messages tied to Yahoo Messenger amounted to unwanted advertising and violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. The judge says customers — of which there may be as many as 500,000 — may sue as a group because their complaints are similar enough. Yahoo did not comment on the development. In other Yahoo news, the company shuttered its Yahoo Screen app and service, which focused on delivering video content to mobile devices and web users. The various video programs that participated in Yahoo Screen have been disseminated to other Yahoo properties.
