Rick Carroll reports:

An Aspen law firm has filed a class-action complaint on behalf of millions of Google e-mail users, alleging the Internet host violated their privacy.

Filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court of Denver, the lawsuit seeks to attain class-action status on behalf of users of Google’s free e-mail service, Gmail.

Aspen attorneys John Case and Lauren Maytin are the two plaintiffs who represent the users in the class-action suit, which was filed by the Aspen firm Thomas Genshaft PC. Neither Maytin nor Case are members of Thomas Genshaft PC.

The suit accuses California-based Google of violating three federal communications laws — the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Stored Communications Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act — after it rolled out its Google Buzz social networking service Feb. 9. The suit also alleges violation of privacy under Colorado common law.
