Article comments

Though much of the information related to these ten tech lawsuits sounds like punch lines to jokes, they’re all real lawsuits from our tech-obsessed century. We sifted through dockets nationwide to find the most ridiculous ones for your enjoyment.


Rosenberg vs Harwood

After being struck in 2009 by a car while walking in the dark on a busy highway, Lauren Rosenberg filed suit against the driver who hit her (Harwood) and against Google. Rosenberg blamed the walking directions given to her by Google Maps for landing her in the middle of dangerous traffic. Google carries a warning about the imperfect reliability of its directions. This summer, a judge threw the case out of court.
