Request: We received a third-party court order to delist a reputable news article from Google Search about a French businessman who was accused of running a fraudulent olive oil company and not properly compensating artisans. The court ruled the article defamatory, finding that the news source did not conduct its investigation into the facts with due diligence and used aggressive terms to describe the complainant.
Outcome: We delisted the link to the article from google.fr domain.
