These are the court documents:

[curia.europa.eu...]

Case is about an Austrian government official being "defamed" in a facebook post. Facebook Ireland refused to remove the post. EC Court of Justice has now ruled that EU states can order world wide censorship when requested.

Not sure how that will fly in countries that have different laws...
