Connecticut personal injury lawyers Michael Stratton and Joel Faxon are suing Google, claiming that it improperly sold advertising rights to the New Haven-based firm's name to Stamford competitor Silver, Golub & Teitell. Stratton Faxon filed an action Wednesday to place a $50,000 pre-judgment lien against Google. The lawyers also seek an injunction to prevent Google from selling law firm names in Connecticut as so-called adwords. "I don't think Google should make money selling my law firm's name," said Stratton.
