Acquitted of federal charges, Hamel man now wants DOJ to remove news release from web
Steven Dornsbach says web search results are hurting his family's concrete construction company
October 23, 2023
Steven Dornsbach won a rare acquittal in federal court in May when a jury found him and his concrete construction company not guilty of rigging bids for public projects. But that was far from the end of the 69-year-old Hamel man's legal saga.
Now Dornsbach and his attorneys are urging the U.S. Department of Justice to remove from its website a news release announcing his indictment last year, arguing that its continued prominence in web search results is hurting the family business.
"It means a lot to me because I'm not a cheater, I didn't steal from anybody, and I didn't bribe anybody," Dornsbach said in an interview last week. "It's over, but they could at least take my name off there. I didn't do anything wrong."
