Google’s Right-to-Be-Forgotten Fine Toppled by French Court

Google won a battle over the right to be forgotten after France’s top administrative court canceled a fine of 100,000 euros ($111,000) for failing to remove contentious search results globally.

France’s Council of State threw out the 2016 penalty, following guidance from the European Union’s highest court which last year backed the Alphabet Inc. unit by saying it should only scrub search results on European versions of its websites.
