Roberts v. Google

Mark Roberts claimed breach of contract, in part because of Google's add URL feature and help pages supposedly formed a promise that his pages should be top ranked. After Google threatened to file an anti-SLAPP motion against him, a means of effectively getting the court to agree that the case is without merit and recovering costs, he voluntarily dismissed the complaint without prejudice.
