Yes, it's another lawsuit that the Google's lawyers will need to handle. This one was filed by Agence France Press (AFP) (a global news agency that supplies material to many news sites) in U.S. District Court on Thursday.
AFP is suing Google for "at least $17.5 million" and "an order barring Google News from displaying AFP photographs, news headlines or story leads..." A Reuters article also says that AFP has asked Google to "cease and desist" from using its content but "Google has ignored such requests and as of the filing date of the lawsuit 'continues in an unabated manner to violate AFP's copyrights.'"
