WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court has left in place the settlement of a class-action lawsuit against Facebook over a marketing program that broadcast users’ purchasing and shopping habits to their friends.

The justices declined Monday to review the $9.5 million settlement of a lawsuit about the now-shuttered Beacon marketing program. The money from the settlement was used to pay lawyers and set up an Internet privacy foundation. Almost none of it reached Facebook users.
