SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal appeals court has revived potential class action status for a lawsuit alleging Google misled advertisers about where their ads would appear.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that a lower court’s reasoning for denying class certification was wrong. It sent the case back down for further proceedings.

At issue is a lawsuit filed by several advertisers alleging Google failed to tell them that online ads would appear on error pages and parked domains, which are sites that have no content.

They sought class certification on behalf of people who used a particular Google advertising program between 2004 and 2008 and were charged for clicks on advertisements appearing on error pages and parked domains.

Google said it had no comment.
