The main dilemma centers on the fact that any court action comes up in a place of prominence when a Google search is performed. The question is why?
- Any legal records, including court documents and other judicial files, are strongly protected through the power of the Constitution.
- We live in a world with advanced search engine technology that makes it possible for very specific matches to be pulled up through the ability to cross check all available online content.
- There are commercial publishers of litigation who feels strongly that it is in the best interest of the public to have access to sensitive judicial filings. These commercial publishers take advantage of “search engine optimization” tools that guarantee top page placement of the specific name queried.
