U.S. Judge Rules Against Canadian Order for Google to De-Index Searches

A U.S. federal court issued a preliminary injunction against a Canadian Supreme Court ruling, which asked Google to de-index certain search results not just in Canada but on a global basis. The Canadian ruling "undermines the policy goals of Section 230 [of the US Communications Decency Act] and threatens free speech on the global internet," wrote Judge Edward Davila of the U.S. District Court for Northern California.
