Eric Goldman points us to a pro se case filed by a guy, Paul Hynard, who is apparently quite upset that searches on his name point to previous lawsuits that he was involved in that he doesn't want public. Of course, as with many pro se lawsuits, many of the concepts in the filing (embedded below) are a bit on the nutty side. However, as Goldman notes, this is the sort of thing that will become a lot more common if Europeans succeed in passing laws that grant a right to be forgotten. Do we really want to be dealing with regular lawsuits like this?
