Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal is leading efforts by 39 states to investigate Google’s collection of WiFi data via its StreetView software. On July 21, 2010, Blumenthal issued a letter to Google requesting information about whether the software was designed to collect such information or was, as the company has stated, “a mistake.” The letter also asks for the names of Google employees who wrote the StreetView code and whether they knew that the software could collect WiFi information.
