Google Sued over "Location History" Privacy Violations

According to the story:

1. "Google is facing new scrutiny in the wake of revelations that it stores users’ location data even when "Location History" is turned off."

2. "Last Friday, Google quietly edited its description of the practice on its own website—while continuing said practice—to clarify that "some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps."'

3. "In the lawsuit, which was filed in federal court last Friday in San Francisco, attorneys representing a man named Napoleon Patacsil argued that Google is violating the California Invasion of Privacy Act and the state’s constitutional right to privacy."
