Ex-F1 Chief Mosley Settles Google Lawsuits Over Sex-Tape

Updated on

Ex-Formula One president Max Mosley has settled lawsuits against Google Inc. over the search engine’s links to photos of him at a sex party.

“The dispute has been resolved amicably and to the parties’ mutual satisfaction,” his U.K. lawyer, Dominic Crossley, said in an e-mail. He declined to comment on the terms of the settlement.

News Corp. newspaper The Sun published images of Mosley at an orgy with women dressed in military uniforms in 2008. Mosley, the 75-year-old son of a prominent British Fascist politician, won his breach-of-privacy case against The Sun and has sued Google in several countries to have the images removed from search results.

Mountain View, California-based Google confirmed the settlement in an e-mail, without providing further details. The news was first reported in the German publication Der Spiegel.
