The ex head of the FIA, which governs Formula 1, Max Mosley, is taking legal action against Google over images of him with prostitutes that are indexed online.




Max Mosley, the son of the former leader of the British Union of Fascists, issued High Court proceedings against Google, claiming that the company is in breach of the UK's Data Protection Act, according to the BBC. The pictures were first published in Britain's News of the World tabloid, which has since ceased to exist. Mosley successfully sued the paper in 2008.


At the time, the newspaper published the pictures on its front page. Mosley won damages after the paper accused Mosley of organizing a sex party with a Nazi theme. The High Court ruled that this story was not in the public interest. Google has said it is working with Mosley.
