Be aware the allegations are for actions at a former employer:

None of the allegations involve Google

Very interesting story. I wonder if it will have any impact on the IPO proceedings?

It is interesting, but I don't see any immediate impact on Google. They should have picked squeaky clean, but that is hard to do in today's environment!

I'm sure this one will be swept under the carpet and we will all proceed as planned :)
