+ - Google loses Australia 'gangland' defamation lawsuit->

Submitted by another random user
another random user (2645241) writes "A jury in Australia has found Google liable for damages after a complaint that its search results had linked a local man to gangland crime.

Milorad Trkulja had alleged that the US firm's image and web results had caused harm to his reputation.

The 62-year-old had said the site had refused to remove the material when asked. He had previously won a related case against Yahoo.

Google has not commented on the verdict and might still appeal. The judge is expected to set the level of damages owed within a fortnight."
