While Alexander Hanff filed a solo lawsuit against Google in the U.K. over their privacy policy changes, there’s been a potential class action lawsuit filed in the U.S. Sara Forden and Bob Van Voris report:

Google Inc. (GOOG) customers sued the company over claims they were deceived by its new privacy rules merging separate policies for about 60 services into one.

The suit seeks to represent in a group, or class action, people who held Google accounts and mobile phones powered by its Android operating system from August 19, 2004, until after March 1, when the new privacy policy went into effect, according to a complaint filed today in federal court in Manhattan.

Update:  The Los Angeles Times has uploaded a copy of the complaint. John Ribeiro of Computerworld also notes another potential class action lawsuit that was filed in federal court in California.
