Josh Blackman, a constitutional law professor at South Texas College of Law, described the order and similar ones cropping up around the country as “blatantly unconstitutional.”

“You get these kinds of cases all the time, where a lawyer gives a judge an order and throws in, ‘and Google too,'” Blackman said. “They have no authority to tell Google to delete this from the Internet.”

Expunging court records, he said, does not include Internet records, especially search results.

“I feel for those people, but the remedies are unconstitutional.” Blackman said. “You can’t mandate that someone censor a search engine.”
