    Its small claims court. Google didn't even have lawyers representing them - a paralegal instead.

    All you'll win is the few bucks Google owes you. Better than nothing I guess... but you cannot get your account back via small claims court.

    Sounds like a rare exception, doubt others would be able to do it.

    QUOTE:

    Paralegal: "But it's not fair!" Google's paralegal protested. "What if everyone whose account was canceled sued Google?"

    Judge: It's a valid question. Yet until Google changes its policies to become more transparent, which might also reassure skeptics that AdWords and AdSense, which have oddly limited reporting capabilities, aren't just two sides of the same ponzi scheme (for why else would one want to terminate legitimate accounts with high monthly liabilities when they're supposed to be making money for Google on each click?)--I will give this answer:

    Maybe everyone whose account was canceled, should.

    Opppps the doorway just got a lot bigger for the little guys that got stroked by adsence team ! :p

    Until they start giving actual reasons as to why they close accounts (which as of now they do not do) they can get sued and loose countless times.

    They have been having a bad year in the courts...

    lost the "Adsence Suit" $761
    lost the "Book Suit" $125 million
    The Next "PR suit" .... $ Priceless (when you control 80% of the web and PR is a sign of "Trust" hurting millions of people earnings)

    like the "capital one" commercials ....whats in your wallet?

    magda, I wanted to send you a PM but you do not accept PM's here. Which thats fine. I was curious if you could PM me your email address perhaps? I am not going to spam you, I have a legitimate question for you that I don't want to ask here publicly. :)

    Great story, thanks for sharing. Before I read this, there is no way for me to believe in suing Google and winning. But now I do
