Kinderfinished (with an UPDATED link)

As in stick-a-fork-in-it:

A U.S. judge has thrown out a lawsuit challenging the fairness of how Web search leader Google Inc. calculates the popularity of Web sites in determining search results, court papers show.

In a ruling issued on Friday that came to light on Tuesday, Judge Jeremy Fogel of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed a lawsuit against Google by parenting information site KinderStart.

The judge also imposed yet-to-be-determined sanctions on KinderStart legal counsel Gregory Yu for making unsupported allegations against Google.

That’s called a bad litigation outcome.

Remember: Google is not a utility. And then some.

UPDATE:  Eric Goldman figures it all out.

    “That’s called a bad litigation outcome.” My legal ethics professor told my class the first day, “The primary goal of legal ethics is to make sure that if someone has to go to jail it is your client and not you.” Or Yu.
