A federal judge has ruled against Hood in his effort to keep Google from getting its hands on correspondence between Hood and lobbyists for the motion picture industry. It's the latest defeat for Hood in his effort to investigate the Internet search giant, after the same judge wrote a stinging opinion suggesting that Hood was acting in bad faith and sent a lengthy subpoena to Google as retaliation for the company's refusal to buckle under to Hood's objections about what it posts online.

FILE - In this Jan. 11, 2012 file photo Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood speaks at a news conference at his Jackson, Miss., offices. In a sweeping review of the United States’ civil rights record, a United Nations panel pointed to serious shortcomings Thursday, March 27, 2014, in what it described as an overall lack of adequate oversight and transparency in national security programs dealing with everything from electronic surveillance to targeted drone killings to secret detentions. Hood and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker were the two non-federal officials chosen by the U.S. government to represent its civil rights record on the state and local levels. The panel's report Thursday is based on extensive study and questioning of U.S. officials, including Becker and Hood, at the hearing earlier this month. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
