Google Loses Street View Suit, Forced To Pay $1

Translation Error writes “Two and a half years ago, the Borings sued Google for invading their privacy by driving onto their private driveway and taking pictures of their house to display on Google Street View. Now, the case has finally come to a close with the judge ruling in favor of the Borings and awarding them the princely sum of $1. While the judge found the Borings to be in the right, she awarded them only nominal damages, as the fact that they had already made images of their home available on a real estate site and didn’t bother to seal the lawsuit to minimize publicity indicated the Borings neither valued their privacy nor had it affected in any great way by Google’s actions.”
