Another Google lawsuit

Google, already fighting numerous lawsuits, is now being sued for banishing a Web site from its index, according to an Associated Press article.

KinderStart, a Web site devoted to information about children, claims it was dropped from the index without warning, the article says. "KinderStart alleges Google has engaged in anticompetitive behavior and misled the public by positioning its search engine as an objective source for finding Internet content. The suit seeks unspecified financial damages and a court order that would require Google to change its ways."

Representatives from Google did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment and KinderStart and its lawyer named in the article could not be reached for comment late on Friday.
