Default Google accused of ad fraud over AdWords on parked domains

How would you respond if you had paid Google $136.11 for advertising that appeared not on quality sites like The New York Times, but on parked domains and error pages? If you were lawyer Hal Levitte, you might file a federal lawsuit in California over Google's behavior and then seek class-action status for the claim.

That's exactly what Levitte did on July 11, when his lawyer filed a complaint against Google (first reported by Information Week). The complaint, a copy of which was provided to Ars Technica, argues that Google is guilty of "unjust enrichment" by promising high-quality ad placements and then serving a substantial portion of ads on low-quality sites.
