Pedestrian sues Google over Google Maps
PC World reports that a woman who says she relied on Google for walking directions in Utah that got her hit on a major roadway has filed a lawsuit against the Internet company claiming it supplied unsafe directions. Lauren Rosenberg filed the $100,000 lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court in Utah. She says that she used her BlackBerry to download walking directions from Google Maps between two Park City addresses. Apparently it was dark outside, and Google maps had her walk through Park City on a road without sidewalks that she says isn't safe for pedestrians.
