Google NZ was sued for defamation. The lawsuit was dismissed on summary judgment, because it was decided that the Google NZ entity was not carrying on business in New Zealand and had no control over the search engine. The court left open the question of whether Google is responsible for defamatory material that it produces from its search engine.
