High Court rules against Google in claim for right to be forgotten

Mr Justice Warby has today handed down Judgment in long running claims against Google.

Finding in favour of one of the Claimants, a businessman, Mr Justice Warby has said that “an appropriate delisting order” should be made.

Both claims concerned publications listed on the Google platform which related to historic criminal offences.

It was argued that the convictions were now spent and that the ongoing publication amounted to misuse of private information.

The second claim where the criminal offence committed was more serious, failed.
