Appeals court again nixes Google's bid to overturn Street View case

Jaikumar Vijayan | Jan. 3, 2014
The court also rejects company's petition for a hearing.

Daniel Castro, a senior analyst with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), said the amendment is significant for Google.

"It's fairly rare for a court to significantly modify a previous opinion," Castro said. With the appellate court's first ruling, Google almost did not have a case. This week's opinion "opens the door for them to continue to argue the case."

A Google spokesman expressed muted satisfaction over the developments. ""We're pleased that the Court granted our request for a rehearing and revised its opinion. But we are disappointed that the order was not completely reversed and are considering our next steps."
