Are there facilities for monitoring remotely the progress of cases like this?
No need for the drama.
A similar offender is LinkedIn, but I tolerate them because you never know when someone will reach out with a job offer.
1. Stories like this are in the news because they're extraordinary. Stuff that happens every day isn't in the news, because... it's not news. There are 300 million people in the U.S. Occasionally weird things like this are inevitable.
2. These stories almost always have simple explanations: In this case, a restraining order. If you aren't supposed to contact someone, you aren't supposed to contact them. Your problem if you don't know how keep your email provider from emailing them, not the court's problem. Do you think a judge would accept "I don't know another route" as an explanation if he kept driving by her house?
3. There is nothing to discuss or learn from this kind of story. Something happened that seems odd at first glance and is tangentially related to tech. That's all this is. This isn't a new policy of jailing people for sending invites. It isn't indicative of a new trend. It's just something that happened and seems odd. As far as I can tell, it's exactly the correct response to a restraining order violation.
Google shouldn't be sending out invitations without an action from the user.
