This is a bizarre and intriguing story: A woman was following directions on her Blackberry using Google Maps. She ended up on a busy street and was subsequently run over by a car. So she is now suing Google for damages, since the program said it was safe to walk on that road.
Sounds like a very long bow to draw, even for American lawyers. Maybe they think they've got a better chance of winning since it's probably the first claim of its kind? And Google certainly has very deep pockets ...
Whatever the reason, I doubt it will be the last claim of its kind!
