Google Pays 'Boring' Couple $1 in Damages for Trespassing

Paul Lilly

Aaron and Christine Boring are now $1 richer after winning a court dispute against Google for "intentional and/or grossly reckless invasion" of privacy, TechCrunch reports .

The 'Boring' couple filed the suit two years ago after one of Google's Street View cars drove by their home and snapped a few photos. There were other charges in the case, all of which were tossed out of court, save for the sole Trespassing charge.

More than two years later, a judge finally ruled in the couple's favor, finding Google guilty of Count II Trespass. For their troubles, they'll receive a buck.

"We are pleased that this lawsuit has finally ended with plaintiff's acknowledgment that they are entitled to only $1," Google said.

No word on how the Borings plan to spend their settlement.
