In a first of its kind of event, a division bench of the supreme court came down heavily on a petitioner who sought damages of Rs 75 lakhs from Google India because he was allegedly distracted by the sexual content in advertisements on the Google owned streaming platform youTube. The petitioner alleged that he couldn’t pass a Madhya Pradesh police recruitment examination because of the same reason.

Invoking Article 19(2)  of the Constitution, which outlines the reasonable restrictions on the freedom of speech and expression, the petitioner also sought a blanket ban on nudity on social media platforms.


The bench which  comprised Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Abhay S. Oka, expressed its shock and disbelief saying “This is one of the most atrocious petitions ever filed under article 32”. While pronouncing the order Justice Kaul, also categorically stated “If you do not like an advertisement do not watch it”

“What for do you need damages? Because you use the internet or since you failed the exam because you use the internet?” the Justice further asked. “You have come to demand for damages because sexual content in advertisements apparently diverted you attention. Now,  you have to pay damages to the court because of your conduct”,  the judge said.

While dismissing the petition and imposing and in exemplary cost of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner, Justice Kaul also remarked “These kind of petitions are after wastage of judicial time”

The petitioner appealed saying “Your Lordship, please forgive me. My parents are daily wage labourers”

“You think you can come to this court whenever you want publicity? I will reduce the cost but will not forgive you” said justice Kaul and directed the cause to be reduced to Rs. 25000. “I do not have a source of income” the petitioner further said to which the justice replied “If you do not have a source of income, we have no other way but to recover the debt”

Here’s how internet reacted to the bizarre case filed be the individual:
