Brit, Max Mosley suing Google to remove unflattering and scandalous material about him from search results

Max Mosley, is suing Google in Europe to block all search results regarding his alleged participation in some sort of Nazi sex orgy.  Maybe there is a shot for success in Europe where privacy and data protection laws are strict, but in the United States? I am no defender of Nazis (nor of orgies for that matter), but I do see Mosley's point. What if the allegations are untrue or even misleading? The digital record is there forever, whether it is true or not. On the other hand, if it is true, why shouldn't people have the right to see it and if we draw an exception for Mosley what is the standard for everyone else?
