Lane's Gift and
Collectibles Click Fraud Lawsuit belongs in state court
The 8th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis, Ark., has declined to overrule a federal
district judge's decision to send the case back to Miller County Circuit Court
in Texarkana, Ark., where it was originally filed
According to the court the
class-action lawsuit by Lane's Gifts and Collectibles alleging ``click fraud''
by Google Inc. and other Internet companies should be heard in state court
rather than in a federal courtroom. The suit was filed before President Bush
signed legislation that funnels most class-action lawsuits to federal court.
