U.S. judge grants preliminary approval to $415 million class action settlement over no-poach allegations against Apple, Google, Intel, and Adobe.

U.S. judge in San Jose, California says $415 million is "substantial," particularly because the plaintiffs could receive no damages if case went to trial.

Total recovery for tech worker class in no-poach case is $435 million, when combined with previous $20 million settlement involving Disney and Intuit.
