UK High Court decision on RTBF in relation to past criminal offenses

On April 13, the High Court of England and Wales handed down judgment in the joined cases of NT 1 & NT 2 v Google LLC. The cases address the scope of a person’s right to have results about them delisted by the Google search engine when no longer relevant, in line with the 2014 Court of Justice of the European Union ruling in the Google Spain case.

Court decided that in each case a careful assessment is needed that pays due regard to the particular facts.
