Guest Blogger, Janine Hiller: Google Trespass Case

ALSB member Janine Hiller from Virginia Tech shares the following case for use in class:

It occurred to me that one of the cases that I have long used in Internet Law actually resulted in a final verdict that illustrates trespass to land quite well, and relates to Streeview, of which students of course are well aware. It is not a brand new case, Boring v. Google settled in 2010, but I recently came across the website of the plaintiff's attorney chronicling the case which provides interesting and impassioned commentary on the power of Google and the rights of individuals. So other discussions can also be interesting.

Editor's note: The plaintiff's attorney's website is quite detailed.
Below is a news video from early in the life of this lawsuit:
