Stayart v. Google Inc., 2013 WL 811793 (7th Cir. March 6, 2013).

\Would you be upset if people searching for your name are prompted to search for your name plus the name of an erectile dysfunction drug like Viagra or Cialis?  For example, if you search for “Eric Goldman,” a search engine might suggest that you search for “Eric Goldman Viagra.”  I suspect many of us would never discover that the search engines were doing this, and those who did would find it perplexing but amusing.
