Borings Are Not Quitters, Though They Should Be

The Borings are not giving up easily.  They are asking the federal court to reconsider its dismissal of their lawsuit against Google for invasion of privacy.  Their motion waves the flag:

"This case is about every little guy, once again being trampled upon by the big shoe of big business. With nowhere to turn but the American Courts, he is cast away to endure the pinpricks of trespass that bleed our American liberty to death,"

Bottom line, if they couldn't get what they wanted from Google based on facts and law, this kind of language isn't going to change a judge's mind.  Save it for the Oscar ceremony, as they say.  Google gave them a process for removing themselves from the Streets database.  They decided to sue instead.  It didn't work.  It's nice to have principles, but sometimes a court won't invest them with the force of law.  Deal with it.  Expect an appeal to the Third Circuit.
