Judge Rules in 'Right to Be Forgotten' Case

According to an article in The Guardian by Jamie Grierson and Ben Quinn, “A businessman [NT2] has won his legal action to remove search results about a criminal conviction in a landmark ‘right to be forgotten’ case that could have wide-ranging repercussions.” A London judge made the decision on April 13, and he “rejected a similar claim brought by a second businessman [NT1] who was jailed for a more serious offence.” Both businessmen, who were not named, had requested that Google remove search results that mentioned their criminal cases. When Google refused, they took the company to court.

Grierson and Quinn continue, “Explaining his decision, the judge said NT1 continued to mislead the public, whereas NT2 had shown remorse. … He said his key conclusion in relation to NT2’s claim was that ‘the crime and punishment information has become out of date, irrelevant and of no sufficient legitimate interest to users of Google search to justify its continued availability.’”
