Disciplined Surgeon Wins Google Right to Be Forgotten Case
January 29, 2019
(Medscape) – A surgeon who was reprimanded for medical negligence won the right to remove Google search results about her case in what was described as a landmark ‘right to be forgotten’ legal ruling. The right to be forgotten is a legal option available within the EU under European data protection laws. The Dutch doctor was disciplined when a complication arose in one of her patients, who later filed a complaint about lack of organisation and aftercare at her clinic.
