Mr. Blumenthal, you are a Senator now

Even though Richard Blumenthal is now Senator-elect for Connecticut, he is apparently continuing his “job creation through litigation” program.  Here are the facts behind his newest venture.

For quite some time, Google has been collecting data that it has used to create its on-line mapping service.  Earlier this year, however, it was revealed that Google has also scanned for wireless networks, but in so doing, it had inadvertently “collected personal information such as email addresses and passwords”.

Google has been working with federal authorities on this, and,

The Federal Communications Commission said last month it was probing whether Google broke federal law in collecting consumer data via Wi-Fi networks. Another agency, the Federal Trade Commission, previously ended its probe and said Google had taken sufficient steps to prevent a recurrence.

In spite of that, Attorney General Blumenthal issued a “subpoena” to Google asking Google to turn over the personal data collected by Google’s Street View vehicles.  When Google failed to comply, on Friday Mr. Blumenthal said he may begin legal action against Google, saying,

[a]ccess to information Google improperly collected from unsecured wireless computer networks may be needed to prevent a repeat.
I don’t know about you, but, if the FTC has already found that Google has taken steps to prevent this from happening in the future, why is Connecticut seemingly wasting taxpayer’s money doing the same thing?  And, perhaps more to the point, if Mr. Blumenthal is simply trying to make sure that this never happens again, why does he need the personal data collected by Google?
