Woman Sues Google for Bad Directions - PCWorld. And, in the category of "Lawsuits that give lawyers a bad name", we have this one, in which a woman allegedly followed a GPS Google direction that happened to be wrong, and which allegedly told her to walk down a "highway", during which stroll she was hit by a car and suffered injuries. She is suing the driver of the car, which I understand. However, suing Google for giving wrong directions is a bit much. To quote my sainted mother, if someone told you to walk off a cliff, would you do it?
