Judge Intervenes As Bank Email Ends Up In Google Account [news.cnet.com]
A bank that accidentally sent sensitive customer information to a Gmail address and persuaded a judge to order Google to deactivate the account has resolved the issue with Google and the companies have filed a motion to dismiss the case.The bank asked Google for information on the owner of the Gmail address, but Google said the bank had to get a court order to get access to that information. Last week, a judge in the U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif., ordered Google to deactivate the Gmail account and Google complied, Pederson said.

"After notifying the account owner, we complied with the court's order. However, after working with Rocky Mountain Bank and the court, we resolved the issue around the bank's error, and both sides have agreed to vacate the TRO and dismiss the case," he said.
