Man drops lawsuit seeking deletion of arrest history from Google
A Japanese man has dropped a lawsuit seeking removal of his arrest history for child prostitution from Google Inc's search engine.
His decision comes after the Supreme Court earlier this year dismissed his demand on a separate provisional injunction made before the trial was concluded at the Saitama District Court. The lawsuit ended on Feb 24, according to the court record.
The top court said in January that the deletion of references can be allowed only when the value of privacy protection significantly outweighs that of information disclosure, in what is its first judgment in Japan that stipulates requirements for the approval of such a request.
