Participated in an application (with the Reporters Committee and other media groups) submitted to the European Court of Human Rights for leave to intervene in Biancardi v. Italy.  The case concerns the application of the right to be forgotten against an online newspaper.  The applicant in the case (who claims his right to freedom of expression was breached) is the chief director of an online newspaper.  The case has significant implications for the developing jurisprudence on the right to be forgotten of the European Court of Human Rights.  Should the court grant this leave to intervene, the Reporters Committee’s written comments would focus primarily on the balance between the right to be forgotten and the right to freedom of expression, without commenting on the facts or merits of the case.  [2020]
