A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that claimed Google's Street View application violated the privacy of a Pennsylvania couple by using pictures of their home.

Aaron and Christine Boring sued Google in April 2008 for privacy, trespassing, negligence and unjust enrichment after photographs of their home showed up on Street View, a mapping program that displays street-level, 360-degree photographs of areas traversed by specially equipped Google vehicles.

The photographs in questions were taken at the foot of the Boring's Pittsburgh area driveway and show the couple's house, a pool area and detached garage.
