A week ago, we had news that Google was sued by a bank over sensitive E-mail sent to a wrong Gmail address by the bank’s employee. Apparently, the issue has been resolved with Google deactivating the Gmail account on the judge’s order. According to Cnet news, the Gmail account will be frozen until the court approves Google’s motion to dismiss the case and vacate the TRO (Temporary Restraining Order). It’s certainly a relief for both sides to be able to close the case amicably within such a short span of time, however, if Google had stood firm and insist on appealing the judge’s decision, it might have taken a much longer time to resolve the issue.

A week ago, we had news that Google was sued by a bank over sensitive E-mail sent to a wrong Gmail address by the bank’s employee. Apparently, the issue has been resolved with Google deactivating the Gmail account on the judge’s order.
According to Cnet news, the Gmail account will be frozen until the
court approves Google’s motion to dismiss the case and vacate the TRO
(Temporary Restraining Order). It’s certainly a relief for both sides
to be able to close the case amicably within such a short span of time,
however, if Google had stood firm and insist on
appealing the judge’s decision, it might have taken a much longer time
to resolve the issue.

“While we regret that
the user has been locked out of their account through no fault of their
own, we’re not legally able to reactivate the account until the court
approves our motion to dismiss the case and vacate the TRO,” Pederson
added. “We’re hopeful that the court will act quickly, and as soon as
the motion is approved, we’ll reactivate the account.”
