Woman sues Google over boob photo on street view

A CANADIAN woman has sued Google for publishing an image of her with one of her breasts partially exposed on Street View.

Maria Pia Grillo was awarded over $2000 in damages after successfully arguing that despite Google blurring out her face, they neglected to blur out her cleavage and her car’s registration plate.

Ms Grillo said she suffered shock and embarrassment when she saw the photo on the map service in 2009.

She started legal proceedings against Google in 2011, seeking $50,000 for emotional damage, including depression and bullying from her work colleagues.

Google was ordered to pay Ms Grillo $2,500 plus interest and $175 in court costs.
