The man, whose name was not given, said the suggested terms that came up when typing his name on Google.fr -- including the words "rape," "rapist" and "prison" -- were damaging for his reputation, court documents showed.

The decision, reported on Saturday in the online edition of Le Monde newspaper, was published in court documents dated September 8 on the French legal web site Legalis. Google confirmed the decision in an email on Saturday.
