Judge Tosses Class-Action Push For Google Suit

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A judge has tossed out an effort to win class-action status for a lawsuit accusing Google of violating the privacy of company email users.
    
U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh ruled Tuesday that it's impossible to know which email users consented to Google's privacy policies, complicating the push for class action status for the lawsuit.
    
At issue is the scanning of contents of Gmail accounts and the related targeting of ads. Several similar lawsuits were filed across the country and were consolidated in Koh's courtroom in San Jose.
    
The judge ruled that individual users can file their own lawsuits, but she permanently blocked another filing of a class action.
