    Germany’s Former First Lady Sues Google to Stop the Internet from Calling Her a Prostitute



    Germany's former first lady Bettina Wulff launched a legal armada of defamation suits against Google, a German celebrity television presenter, and pretty much anyone else in the media that's taken to perpetuating the rumor that she used to work in the "red light world" of prostitution.


    According to the Telegraph, rumors that Wulff worked as a prostitute or escort when she was younger have followed her ever since her husband, Christian Wulff, was nominated to become Germany's president in 2010. She has steadfastly insisted that the rumors are totally false, but has had to cope with a seemingly bottomless well of prostitution allegations, most notably from a well-known German TV talking head, Gunter Jauch, who earlier this May refused to sign a "cease-and-desist declaration" drawn up by Wulff's attorney.


    Wulff, however, has taken on a substantially brawnier opponent in Google, whom she filed a lawsuit against to stop search terms such as "prostitute," "escort" or "red-light past" from appearing as recommendations next to her name. So far, Wulff's legal push has led 34 bloggers and media-types to sign commitments to stop repeating the false allegations that Wulff used to be a prostitute, and though the battle against Google may prove a little tougher, the Telegraph helpfully notes that a precedent for erasing Google's search-term association memory exists: a Japanese man, frustrated that autocomplete would associate his name with crimes he didn't commit, successfully got a court to order Google to delete the heinous recommendations linked to his name.

    Ja, genau! Jauch for president. I keep saying that.

    No comment regarding the first lady, she's too sue-happy.
