Google in second ‘right to be forgotten’ High Court action

Internet giant Google is embroiled in a second High Court case with another businessman demanding that articles concerning his criminal past are removed from the search engines search results.

The businessman – referred to as ‘NT2’ – was convicted of conspiracy to illegally intercept communications ten years ago. He is now arguing that his conviction is now legally spent and that he therefore has the ‘right to be forgotten’, based on 2014 ruling from the European Union’s Court of Justice that outdated and ‘irrelevant’ information regarding EU citizens should be erased upon request. Since this ruling, Google says it has received requests to remove over 2.4 million links from internet search results. These requests can be rejected should the public interest concerns outweigh the individual’s privacy rights.

Google is resisting his demands for them to remove links to websites that come up in its internet search results, including links to articles published by several national newspaper and media outlets. The articles include details and reports on NT2’s conviction, subsequent accounts of his convictions circumstances and his financial affairs. The case follows on from another similar case involving a claimant referred to as ‘NT1’, which involves a demand for the ‘right to be forgotten’ for another businessman who was convicted on false accounting conspiracy charges in the late 1990’s.

High Court judge Mr Justice Warby is expected to rule on both cases soon.
