Judge Rules Google Can Appeal Over WiFi Sniffing as Wiretapping [wired.com]

The decision by U.S. District Judge James Ware tentatively sets aside his June 29 ruling in nearly a dozen combined lawsuits seeking damages from Google for eavesdropping on open, unencrypted Wi-Fi networks from its Street View mapping cars.
