Judge Dismisses Google Maps Lawsuit
U.S. District Court Judge Amy Reynolds Hay granted Google's request for dismissing the lawsuit because "the plaintiffs have failed to state a claim under any count."
The April 2008 lawsuit challenged Google's right to take street-level photos for its Maps' Street View feature. Aaron and Christine Boring alleged in their complaint that Google had invaded their privacy, acted negligently, was unjustly enriched, and trespassed upon their Pittsburgh property, which includes a private road leading to their house.
The Borings requested that the images in question be removed from the Maps service, and Google complied. The court, however, declined the Borings' request for a permanent injunction preventing Google from showing their property's photos in Maps. --Tanya Irwin
