Deal Reached in Google ‘Jew’ Lawsuit

Internet search giant Google has reached a deal with French anti-racism groups who filed a lawsuit over the “Jew” suggestion in the auto-complete feature of the search engine.

The initial lawsuit, filed in May, stated that “numerous users of the first search engine of France and the world are confronted daily with the association, unsolicited and almost systematically, [of] the word ‘Jew’ with the names of those most prominent in the world of politics, media or business.”

Both sides confirmed the deal had been reached for the groups to drop a legal complaint against Google but refused to comment on its specifics, AFP reported.

Six groups, including SOS Racisme, the Movement against Racism and for Friendship between Peoples (MRAP), the International League Against Racism and anti-Semitism (LICRA) and Memoire 2000 argued that Google was unintentionally breaking the law.
