This is the view that Aaron and Christine Boring don't want you to see. The couple — who live at 1567 Oakridge Lane, Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, PA 15237, USA, according to their court filing — are suing Google over the company's "Street View" feature, which takes road-level pictures of neighborhoods for their mapping service. Among the complaints, the Borings — their actual name — accuse Google of an "intentional and/or grossly reckless invasion" of their privacy. More pics after the jump.
You see, their street — Oakridge Lane, Pittsburgh, PA, 15237 — is "clearly marked" by a "Private Road" sign. The Borings bought their home for a "considerable sum of money" — $163,000 — and a "major component" of that decision was a desire for privacy. They're also upset that their "private information was made known to the public."
The couple wants more than $25,000 and Google to remove the pics from Street View. That might happen, but these pictures of the Boring's home at 1567 Oakridge Lane, Pittsburgh, PA 15237 will be searchable on Google for all time.
