Google click fraud settlement given go-ahead

CNET "An Arkansas judge has given final approval to a $90 million settlement Google reached to settle a click fraud lawsuit, rejecting arguments by opposing attorneys that the amount was not adequate compensation for advertisers that had been charged for fraudulent clicks on online ads.
In an order signed Wednesday but released on Thursday, Miller County Circuit Court Judge Joe Griffin said he found that the settlement was 'fair, reasonable and adequate,' and overruled the objections.
'The court finds that approval of the stipulation and the proposed settlement embodied therein will result in substantial savings in time and resources to the court and the litigants, and will further the interests of justice,' he wrote. "
