Justice Isn’t Boring

December 2, 2010 | By | Reply More

I’d heard about this Boring case a couple of years ago, and it finally has reached a verdict.  In essence, Google’s Street View crew accidentally drove up and filmed a private road, and the owners had nothing better to do than sue. I’m picturing some legal adviser drooling over Google’s coffers and thinking they had an angle to get something substantial in the form of a settlement. But the case was pretty weak, with several judges simply stripping off charges, until they were left with second degree trespass. But they won! They beat Google!

As Geek.com puts it: Boring couple win $1 compensation for Street View trespassing.
