The California woman who was ticketed for wearing Google Glass while driving has had her ticket dismissed. The Verge, which originally broke the story we reported on at the end of October, reports that Cecilia Abadie's case was dismissed because it couldn't be proven that the device was actually being used when she was pulled over for speeding by the California Highway Patrol. The speeding charge, 80 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone, was also dropped.

San Diego Court Commissioner John Blair dismissed the case, according to Reuters. The dismissal sets a strong precedent for Google, which has faced opposition in the legislatures of West Virginia, Delaware and New Jersey, as well as in the United Kingdom, over use of wearable tech while driving.
