On May 12, 2023 Lowey Dannenberg P.C. filed a class action lawsuit against Google LLC (Doe v. Google LLC, 5:23-CV-02343 (N.D. CA)) alleging it wrongfully collected identifiable health data from individuals who used certain healthcare websites.

The complaint alleges Google LLC collected individuals’ health data through sophisticated tracking technology, including Google Analytics, incorporated on the websites of major institutions, including the Planned Parenthood website, the Keck Medicine of USC website, and the Sharp HealthCare website. This technology was likely incorporated on hundreds of additional healthcare websites as well.

The health data Google collected includes details about an individual’s medical conditions, prescriptions, and doctor’s appointments. This information may have been used in connection with Google’s advertising practices.
