On December 10, 2010, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal announced that his office is investigating whether Google violated state law by collecting data from unsecured wireless networks through it Street View cars. The Civil Investigative Demand, issued on December 10, 2010, requires Google to provide information regarding the type of data that was collected. Last May, Google acknowledged that it had inadvertently collected data from unprotected wireless networks in 30 countries. According to the Connecticut Attorney General’s press release, “Google initially claimed that the data was fragmented, but has since acknowledged that entire e-mails and other information may have been improperly captured.” In light of this disclosure, Connecticut initiated its investigation to verify the kind of data gathered and determine if it contains e-mails, passwords, web-browsing activity, and other private information. The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) previously investigated Google’s Street View incident and issued a letter closing the investigation in October 2010.
