Request: We received a court order to remove 106 URLs from Google Search and 30 Blogger URLs that were news reports about an operation involving the plaintiff, a male chief of police, who illegally searched a woman. In Brazil, women are to be searched only by female police.
Outcome: We delisted the URLs from google.com.br and removed the blog posts from the blogspot.com.br domain. The case was dismissed with prejudice and we reinstated the URLs to Search results and Blogger.
