Hotel sues Google over search result

10 November 2011

The owners of the Ballymascanlon House Hotel in Co Louth have taken a legal action for damages against internet giant Google, alleging defamation of the hotel’s business and reputation via Google’s web search service.

It is alleged that Google had permitted, since about March 14th 2011, the term “‘receivership’” to automatically appear after the hotel’s trading name when a search is carried out in the autocomplete suggestions in the search bar.

This suggested the hotel was in receivership or financial difficulty when it was not, the plaintiffs claim.
