  • Campbell v MGN Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 06 May 2004

    Accordingly, in deciding what was the ambit of an individual's 'private life' in particular circumstances courts need to be on guard against using as a touchstone a test which brings into account considerations which should more properly be considered at the later stage of proportionality. Essentially the touchstone of private life is whether in respect of the disclosed facts the person in question had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

    The photographs were taken of Miss Campbell while she was in a public place, as she was in the street outside the premises where she had been receiving therapy. The European Court has recognised that a person who walks down a public street will inevitably be visible to any member of the public who is also present and, in the same way, to a security guard viewing the scene through closed circuit television: PG v JH v United Kingdom, App No. 44787/98, para 57.

  • Flood v Times Newspapers Ltd (No 2)
    • Supreme Court
    • 21 March 2012

    The public interest that justified publication was in knowing that the allegations had been made, it did not turn on the content or the truth of those allegations. A publication that attracts Reynolds privilege in such circumstances has been described as "reportage".

  • Galloway v Telegraph Group Ltd
    • Queen's Bench Division
    • 02 December 2004

  • Interbrew SA v Financial Times Ltd and Others
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 08 March 2002

    Even in the period before the mid-19 th century, when the majority of prosecutions were privately brought, the identification of criminals does not feature in the reported cases as a proper purpose of the bill of discovery. If prosecution, that will rarely be the applicant's intent. If it were able to be a crime of which the applicant is not a victim, the limited Norwich Pharmacal purpose would be replaced by a practically untrammelled right to disclosure.

  • Nationwide Building Society v Lewis and Another
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 24 February 1998

    The judge commented that in talking only in terms of giving credit section l4(1) might perhaps be viewed as expressed somewhat restrictively. But he referred to the view of the editor of Lindley & Banks at paragraph 5–52 that the expression should not be construed in a technical or restrictive sense but as describing any transaction of the firm.

  • Jameel and Others v Wall Street Journal Europe Sprl
    • House of Lords
    • 11 October 2006

    But this does not mean that the editorial decisions and judgments made at the time, without the knowledge of falsity which is a benefit of hindsight, are irrelevant. Weight should ordinarily be given to the professional judgment of an editor or journalist in the absence of some indication that it was made in a casual, cavalier, slipshod or careless manner.
