Bank Sues Google for Gmail User's Identity

A bank that inadvertently sent confidential account information on 1325 of its customers to the wrong Gmail address is suing Google for the identity of the Gmail account holder.

The case, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, involves Rocky Mountain Bank of Wyoming. According to court documents, the bank in August received a request from one of its customers asking for certain loan statements to be sent to a third-party. An employee of the bank, responding to the request, sent the documents to the wrong Gmail address.

The story is too old to be commented.
