Article summary

Information Law analysis: In this decision, the court considered the factors at play in considering applications seeking de-listing under the ‘right to be forgotten’, including a detailed legal analysis of the relevant statutory and common law provisions and the systematic approach to be taken to performing the necessary balancing exercise. The fact that a conviction may be spent is only one factor, and may not be the decisive factor.

Mitchell QC (Scotland), barrister at Tanfield Chambers. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
