 First Google street view lawsuit in the USA: Boring v. Google

Google allegedly took pictures from what was labeled as “private property” for its Street View Feature. So, Aaron and Christine Boring filed suit in Allegheny County court on April 2, 2008. They are demanding $25,000 to make up for the "mental suffering" and the diminished value of their home. Google claims that this lawsuit is pointless since anyone can ask them to have pictures removed without legal action. You can watch some of the pictures of the property and the complaint here.
