(Newser) AFP has the lawsuit of the day: A man in France has sued Google because a Street View image caught him urinating in his garden and made him the "object of ridicule in his village," says his lawyer. He filed suit in the city of Angers, claiming infringement of privacy. The news agency confirms the existence of the "slightly blurred" photo but didn't publish it. A Google attorney called the suit "implausible."
