French Court Orders Google to Remove Racy Images

A French court ordered Google Inc. to remove private images of a prominent British man from its search engine, in a ruling that could influence broader European efforts to tighten web-privacy rules. In a closely watched case brought by former Formula One racing chief Max Mosley, Paris's Tribunal de Grande Instance said that Google must remove nine images from its search engine after Mr. Mosley sued in an effort to get the web giant to automatically filter the images and delete any links to them.
