SAN FRANCISCO - The Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Dec. 27 granted in part a petition for rehearing filed by Google Inc. in a class suit over its data collection from unencrypted Wi-Fi networks while capturing Street View photos; however, the panel's amended opinion still affirmed that the trial court did not err when it denied a motion to dismiss a class complaint against Google alleging violations of the federal Wiretap Act (Benjamin Joffe, et al. v. Google, Inc., No. 11-17483, 9th Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 25825).
