Google Inc. has filed a lawsuit alleging that the U.S. Interior Department shut it out of bidding for a large contract, due to a preference for Microsoft Corp.ís technology, in a move that underlines the search giantís growing competition with Microsoft in the market for Internet-based software tools.
According to the suit, Google repeatedly tried to engage the Department of the Interior in "substantive discussions," hoping to convince the agency that it should consider Google Apps, Mountain View's suite of online business tools. Google did eventually meet with the department on multiple occasions, but apparently it didn't go well. At one meeting in April, the suit says, the department told Google that a "path forward has already been chosen" and that Google would not be able to compete for the contract because its services didn't meet the department's security needs.http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/11/01/google_sues_us_gove_for_picking_microsoft/

You can sue someone for not buying your products?
Doesn't Google actually have more employees outside of the US than in or is that another Google secret?
That is no secret
My gut reaction to this is hey Google, you want to generate cash from govt contracts but funnel profits through off-shore entities and not pay any taxes
