Sundar Pichai, CEO, Alphabet to be questioned in a private lawsuit

A California federal judge has ordered that plaintiffs who accuse Alphabet Inc's Google of illegally tracking their internet activity while in "incognito" browsing mode can confront chief executive Sundar Pichai for up to two hours.

Users, in a complaint filed in June 2020, accused Google of illegally breaching their privacy by tracking internet activity while Google Chrome browsers were switched to "private" mode.

According to a Monday court filing, the plaintiffs claim that Pichai has "unique, personal knowledge" of issues connected to the Chrome browser and privacy concerns.

The additional requests, according to Google spokesman Jose Castaneda, are "unwarranted and overreaching."
