Google has Lost a Landmark Right

Google has Lost a Landmark Right

Google has lost a "right to be forgotten" case to a man who wanted links to information about a previous conviction to be removed from the site.

But it did win against another businessman who was fighting against Google at the same time and had committed a more serious offence.

This afternoon the judge announced his decisions in the two cases, which were both contested by Google, following separate High Court trials.

Justice Mark Warby ruled in favour of an unnamed businessman on Friday, siding with his argument that his criminal conviction was now legally "spent", and that they have been rehabilitated.

Their lawyers said their claims, which were brought under data protection law and for misuse of private information, were the first of their kind to be made in England. The man who lost his case was convicted more than 10 years ago of conspiring to account falsely.

A United Kingdom judge has ruled that Google must honor a man's request to erase search results about him. Permission to appeal was granted in his case.

Vehicle with North Carolina plates at scene of CT double murder
Police said they believe Steven Pladl then drove to CT to confront his daughter Katie and her adoptive father, Anthony Busco. Steven and his wife split that year, and she told authorities her husband had been sleeping on the floor of Katie's room.

The court case ensued when "NT2" requested that Google remove online links to articles containing information about his conviction and the company refused him.

The judge said the information related to his crime retains sufficient relevance today.

He remains in business, and the information serves the objective of minimising the risk that he will continue to mislead, as he has in the past. He claimed that the information was no longer relevant and that it should be deleted.

An earlier 2014 ruling in the European Court of Justice that online links to outdated and irrelevant subject matter should be removed when requested has resulted in 669,355 requests for links to be removed from websites, about half of which were successful, The Telegraph reported.

"Courts should also consider the context of particular search results". In response, the media and technology giant has often lent on the defence that retaining such information is in the service of the "public interest".
