Hart Noecker was apparently a relatively prominent social and political activist in Portland, but in early 2015 he was accused of sexual misconduct by several people from that community; for different accounts of the nature of the misconduct, see here and here.
There was apparently no prosecution, but Noecker was publicly condemned within the community, and apparently basically drummed out of that community. (He ended up moving away from Portland, back to where he grew up.) The story was covered in a Willamette Week cover story by Aaron Mesh, a post at the prominent feminist site Jezebel by Cecilia D’Anastasio, and a post at BikePortland.org by Jonathan Maus. In 2016, though, Noecker sued the source of the most serious accusation — Byrd Jasper — and got a default judgment for $49,200; Jasper did not appear to contest the case. (The default judgment order stated that, “having heard the evidence submitted during the prima facie hearing [by Noecker], the court [has found] that defendant defamed plaintiff by making false allegations of sexual assault.”) And then, starting several weeks ago, someone has been asking Google to remove the three stories cited above from its archives, so that Google users wouldn’t find such stories.
