Judge dismisses Google lawsuit
A legal claim by a Pittsburgh couple that Google's Street View feature violated their privacy has been thrown out by a federal judge.
Christine and Aaron Boring sued the search giant after photos of their home appeared on the free mapping programme.
The couple accused Google of privacy violation, negligence, trespassing and unjust enrichment.
In her ruling, Judge Amy Reynolds Hay said the Borings "failed to state a claim under any count".
"We are pleased the judge agreed the suit was without merit," said Google in a statement to the BBC.
Street View displays street level, 360-degree photographs of areas taken by specially equipped Google vehicles.
