US JUDGE DISMISSES NEW MEXICO PRIVACY CLAIMS AGAINST GOOGLE
A U.S. district judge has dismissed New Mexico’s privacy claims against Google over privacy concerns, but New Mexico’s top prosecutor vowed to continue the legal fight to protect child privacy rights.

The judge concluded in a ruling that federal laws and regulations do not require direct consent from parents when schools participate in Google’s education platforms. Google had asked that the case be dismissed, saying it hasn’t violated any laws as it is required only to make reasonable efforts to provide notice and obtain consent.

Under the ruling, New Mexico can amend its complaint.
