A measurement of the decay time dependent CPviolating asymmetry in $B_s^0 \to \phi\phi$ decays is presented, along with measurements of the $T$odd tripleproduct asymmetries. In this decay channel, the CPviolating weak phase arises from the interference between $B_s^0$$\bar{B}_s^0$ mixing and the loopinduced decay amplitude. Using a sample of protonproton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of $3.0 fb^{1}$ collected with the LHCb detector, a signal yield of approximately 4000 $B_s^0 \to \phi\phi$ decays is obtained. The CPviolating phase is measured to be ${\phi_s =0.17\pm0.15\mathrm{ (stat)}\pm0.03\mathrm{ (syst)}}$ rad. The tripleproduct asymmetries are measured to be ${A_U=0.003\pm0.017\mathrm{ (stat)}\pm0.006\mathrm{ (syst)}}$ and ${A_V=0.017\pm0.017\mathrm{ (stat)}\pm0.006\mathrm{ (syst)}}$. Results are consistent with the hypothesis of CP conservation.
