Davis v. Google, No. 09-CH-15753 (Ill. Cir. Ct. filed April 9, 2009).
Status: Pending.

Cherie Davis, mother of Olympic speed skater Shani Davis -- the first black athlete to win an Olympic gold medal in the sport -- requested that Google remove posts from the unknowncolumn.blogspot.com stating that she had referred to the U.S. Speedskating Federation as "white supremacists" and "neo-Nazi genetic mutations." Davis denies making the statements.

After Google refused, Davis attempted to contact blogger Sean Healy, and discovered that he had died in 2007. David then sued Google, seeking a court order that the blog posting be removed.
