Google tells Connecticut to get lost, buddy

The august, sorry December Wall Street Journal is reporting that mega-corporation Google (Ogle) has told minor US state Connecticut to get on its bike.

The chief lawyer of Connecticut, one Richard Blumenthal, subpoenad Google last week to give data about stuff that Ogle’s vehicles had collected using its Street View white vans in the state.

Blumenthal said that Ogle decided not to give it an answer and that he was disappointed that the Schmidt-governed company hadn’t decided to obey its laws.

Ogle told the WSJ (sub required) that it would “continue to work with the authorities”.

Presumably, Google is hoping that it will be let off in the Land of the Fee, particularly so given it has so many fiends in so many high places.

Europa is taking a somewhat different view of the situation, as we have reported.
