Judge Nicklin, who will preside over the first trial, said in a pretrial ruling:
“[The cases concern an] area of the law in which two human rights come into conflict. The right to be forgotten is a dimension of the right to privacy and it conflicts with the right of freedom of expression.”
Google intends to fight both cases. Kent Walker, Google’s general counsel, said in a blog post, “[These lawsuits] represent a serious assault on the public’s right to access lawful information.”
Keep in mind that any information that becomes “delisted” is not taken off the internet; it is just removed from the Google search engine. As Google is the leader in its field, it is assumed that other search engines like Bing and Yahoo will follow Google’s decisions.
