The Argentine judiciary has dismissed an appeal by Google against the judicial measure ordering all data that led to Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s request for the content of the search engine of the technology company where it was published to be retained as ” Thief of the Argentine nation “who decides in favor of the leader.
The ruling of the Supreme Court has thus ratified the decision of the Federal Chamber of Civil and Commerce, which in December provided as a “provisional measure” that Google “would use the means to store the data related to Fernández de Kirchner from May 17, 2020 up to the day the expertise is carried out, “said Télam.
Expertise refers to the action taken by the Chamber in the same resolution to take computer literacy as “pre-emptive evidence” of the “interim measures” request made by the former President. Hence, Google must allow access to its servers for the realization of it.
In particular, the judiciary unanimously rejected the extraordinary appeal submitted by Google because “it is not directed against a final judgment or comparable to one”.
Fernández decided to sue the company for defamation when the search engine replaced his current position with “Thief of the Argentine Nation”, which, replicated by other rooms, caused “incalculable” damage.
When the vice-president’s attorney, Carlos Berardi, requested preliminary evidence in August 2020, he said that Google “posted false and offensive information” about Fernández “on its platform and under its responsibility,” which tarnished his name, image and honor “.
