A judge in Canada ordered Google to pay about $2,500 for shooting a picture of a woman in her front yard.

Maria Pia Grillo was embarrassed that Google Map’s Street View photo showed a whole lot of her cleavage.

She was furious that the photo also showed her street address and her car’s license plate number.

Google eventually blurred out the offending parts of the photo; but Maria convinced the judge that the invasion of her privacy caused her emotional distress.
