Jennifer Lawrence‘s legal team has been working hard in trying to stop the spread of dozens of nude photos of Lawrence that were reportedly hacked from her personal phone account. On Wednesday, her legal team went after giant search site Google with a $100 million lawsuit if the site didn’t remove the stolen pictures from their image search engine.

Since the Aug. 31 leak, many sites such as reddit, Twitter and Imgur have removed the pictures under threat of legal action. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Google, which indexes photos from other sites rather than host the pics itself, came under fire after Lawrence’s attorney, Marty Singer, blamed the search engine for facilitating the distribution of the pics.

“Google, one of the largest ISPs in the world, with vast resources and a huge support staff, generating multimillions of dollars in revenues on a daily basis, has recklessly allowed these blatant violations to continue in conscious disregard of our clients’ rights,” the letter wrote.

On Thursday, Oct. 2, Google responded by saying that they have now removed “tens of thousands” of the Lawrence hacked pics.

In a statement, Google writes, “We’ve removed tens of thousands of pictures — within hours of the requests being made — and we have closed hundreds of accounts. The Internet is used for many good things. Stealing people’s private photos is not one of them.”

Meanwhile, the FBI is continuing the investigation into the hacker ring that leaked dozens of private celebrity photos on the Internet. So far, no arrests have been made.
