Journalist Peter Gregory The Age (Saturday 9 February, 2008) reports that Melbourne real estate agent Paul Castran, managing director of Castran GilbertReal Estate, and the company’s sale director Mark Forytarz, annoyed by allegedly defamatory articles by consumer advocate Neil Jenman, are taking legal action against Google to stop internet access to the articles.
According to the article,
“The allegations are contained in two articles from Mr Jenman’s website, which could be seen when the agents’ names were entered on internet search engine Google.
A Supreme Court statement of claim lodged in December said they sought action by Google to remove access to the articles, but it was not done.”
Asks Neil Jenman,
“Why wouldn’t they attack the person who is making the comments about them?…Here’s my chest. Come on, take a shot at me.”
It seems strange that no action is taken against Neil Jenman, when a simple search on the names Paul Castran and Mark Forytarz in the Jenman website reveal the articles in full.
