North Bay residents file class action suit against Yahoo, Google

The suits were filed by three North Bay residents on behalf of everyone in California who is not a GMail or Yahoo subscriber, but who has sent emails to people who are.

They claim the web giants illegally intercept the emails of non-users as part of their advertising programs.

Yahoo has not commented. Google says its service is automated and humans don't read its users' emails.
