LawsuitpaidContent reports the lawsuit brought against Google in 2008 over quality of ads showing on parked or error message web pages has been thrown out by the court.

On Thursday, January 5th, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila turned down the class action suit brought against Google. He said he would not allow the suit because “it was more appropriate for companies who had bought the ads to show any alleged harm on an individual basis,” according to paidContent.

Here is the 25-page court document with the ruling:
