Midweek media law mop up: Phone hacking arrests; BBC Four's See You In Court; & new Defamation Joint Committee

Here’s this week’s round up of media law news from sunny London. Phone hacking and defamation reform, as usual, dominate. Hopefully we won’t inadvertently include any legal April Fools.

Defamation

The latest on the Solicitors From Hell libel saga, can be found in this report on 5RB; in ‘Awdry Bailey Douglas & Anr v Kordowski’ the defence was struck out and the defendant was refused permission to appeal. A final injunction was issued at the hearing and the defendant was ordered to pay the claimants’ costs.

Costs

Phone hacking

Injunctions

Privacy

Regulation
