Judge to give ruling on Google 'right-to-be-forgotten' case

Google told to remove links to businessman's criminal case

Justice Mark Warby said in a ruling Friday that one story in a national United Kingdom newspaper was "misleading as to the nature and extent of the claimant's criminality".

NT2 was convicted more than 10 years ago of conspiring to intercept communications, having been involved in "a controversial business that was the subject of public opposition over its environmental practices", and spent six months in jail.

The two men, who can't be identified because of a court order, had asked that links to information on their old convictions be taken down.

The ruling in the case of NT2 means that Google must remove search results relating to the man's convictions - something the judge was happy to rule about because of the remorse that has been shown. Weighing such factors in a Right to be Forgotten case in such a manner seems to be potentially precedent setting, and could have significant implications for other convicted criminals in Europe who seek to have stories about their misdeeds erased from search results. He spent four years in jail.

"He remains in business, and the information serves the objective of minimizing the risk that he will continue to mislead, as he has in the past", Warby said of NT1. "He has not accepted his guilt, has misled the public and this court, and shows no remorse over any of these matters".

The company's representative, Antony White QC, said that the ruling was "not a right to rewrite history or. tailor your past if that's what this claimant would like to use it for".

He added it could draw additional publicity for the information in question.

They took Google to court when it refused to remove the search results.
