Trkulja, who was shot in 2004, claimed that the photographs that were circulating at the time were obviously photos that linked him to the search. And now he will find his picture when he searches for the topic of “Melbourne criminal triad”.
According to ABC, Trkulja sued Google in 2012. In the same year, he succeeded in claiming that he had the right to sue Google again in the Supreme Court of Victoria, but the appellate court later overturned the ruling that he could not prove his case well.
The Supreme Court of Australia agreed on Wednesday that people can “rationally assume” that someone’s photographs appear within the search. The ruling required Google to pay Trkulja's court fees.
Trkulja said in an interview with The Guardian:
"I will sue Google... until they stop me, I will stop sueing them. I want them to block my photos. I am not a criminal. I have never participated. I will make sure that these people will not ruin my Family - I have grandchildren."
Google currently refuses to comment on the case.
