Google Avoids Another Lawsuit Over Rankings Roberts v. Google, the "first legitimate complaint vs google regarding search result issues," was dismissed after Google threatened  to file an anti-SLAPP motion against Mark Roberts.

Roberts is a proprietor of two e-commerce websites. He was claiming breach of contract as Google's add URL feature and help pages formed a promise that his pages should be top ranked. They were in 2003 but later dropped. He still considers his pages to be most relevant.

Anti-SLAPP motion is a means of effectively getting the court to agree that the case is without merit and recovering costs. However, an earlier case of similar nature, that was summarily discarded as non-sensical continues even after Google has proceeded with anti-SLAPP motion.
