SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Inc defeated a U.S. class action lawsuit brought by Apple retail workers over the company's bag search practices, according to a court ruling on Saturday.

The decision, from U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco, came in a case where employees sued to be reimbursed for the time taken by Apple to search their bags to ensure they did not steal any merchandise.
