A California woman is suing Google after she was hit by a car while following directions provided by Google Maps on her cell phone, according to AOL News.
Lauren Rosenberg says that the Google Maps BlackBerry application told her to use Deer Valley Drive -- a highway also called Utah State Route 224 -- to walk from one Park City address to another.
However, the directions did not tell her that there were no sidewalks along Deer Valley Drive, which, Rosenberg alleges, led to her being struck by traffic.

The one thing that sucks about America is the frivolous law suits.
You can run a business, do a great job, produce a great product or service, but some jerk stain can end it all in a heart beat with a bs lawsuit.
Or you can settle because it costs less, and then watch your premiums rise.
This is another reason not to open a business in the States. It's roulette, and when the ball lands on your number... you're facked.
This wench should have her case tossed from court, be given a severe reprimand, and if possible fined to the max for wasting the court's time and resources. At a minimum she should have to do 100-hours of community service for her idiocy.
