N.Y. Politician Drops 'Porn' Lawsuit Against Google

A Long Island politician has dropped a federal lawsuit that had claimedthe search engine company Google Inc. profits from child pornography. Jeffrey Toback, a member of the Nassau County Legislature fromOceanside, filed suit in May claiming Google had "paid links" to Websites containing child pornography.

Toback said he dropped the lawsuit because "Google has offered to sitdown and discuss the issues." Google spokesman Steve Langdon said the MountainView, Calif.-based company was "pleased that the suit has been dismissedand believe it was completely without merit."

A formal notice ending the suit was filed Wednesday.

Toback, who has sponsored local legislation raising the age that teenagerscan legally buy cigarettes to 19 and limiting teens' access to tanning salons,said last month that he filed the lawsuit because oversight of Google wasbeyond the purview of county legislators.
