Google case over online abuse settled in High Court

A UK businessman who took Google to court over malicious web postings directed at him, has reached a settlement with the firm.

Daniel Hegglin said he had been wrongly called a murderer, a paedophile and a Ku Klux Klan sympathiser by an unknown internet troll.

These posts could be found using the Google's search engine.

Mr Hegglin's lawyer told a High Court judge that Google had made "significant efforts" to remove abusive material.

Clive Coleman reports.
