Google Street View Privacy Suit Thrown Out

A law suit by a Pittsburgh couple against Google for invasion of privacy over images of their home that appeared on Google Streetview has been thrown out by the court. Aaron and Christine Boring sued Google last April alleged that "significantly disregarded (their) privacy interests" by taking photos of their home from a road that was clearly marked as private. They claimed that the images caused them "mental suffering" and devalued their home. The U.S. District Court for Western Pennsylvania ruled however that the Borings "failed to state a claim under any count."
