Pittsburgh couple sues Google over Street View
A couple from Pittsburgh (Franklin Park) has sued Google because a photo of their house appeared on Google Street View.According to the Smoking Gunthey are demanding in excess of $25,000 to make up for the 'mental suffering' and the diminished value of their home. They live on a 'Private Road' and claim that putting a photo of their property online is an 'intentional and/or grossly reckless invasion' of their privacy. Google, on the other hand, claims that this lawsuit is pointless since anyone can ask them to have pictures removed without legal action.
