Class action against gets the green light

A federal judge in northern California has approved parts of a class-action lawsuit against Groupon that accuses the company of bait-and-switch advertising. The suit, filed by a San Francisco tour company, claims Groupon "buys tour-related keywords on Google's AdWords service, but often does not actually offer tour coupons when customers arrive at the site." This inflates the price of keywords for the tour company, but actually decreases the prominence of its ads in Google searches, the suit alleges.  Dan Levine, Reuters  08/24/2011
