    • 23 Julio 2008

    They can, moreover, sometimes be based on the wrong questions and thus produce irrelevant or unhelpful responses or for some other reason, as in this case, be of no evidential value. Those directions can then be given in advance of the trial (see, for example, the further proceedings in the U K Channel Management case given by Lewison J, [2007] EWHC 2339 (Ch)).

  • London Artists Ltd v Littler; Grade Organisation Ltd v Littler; Associated Television Ltd v Littler; Grade v Littler
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 10 Diciembre 1968

    There is no definition in the books as to what is a matter of public interest. All we are given is a list of examples, coupled with the statement that it is for the Judge and not for the jury. Whenever a matter is such as to affect people at large, so that they may be legitimately interested in, or concerned at, what is going on; or what may happen to them or to others; then it is a matter of public interest on which everyone is entitled to make fair comment.

  • Morgan v Odhams Press Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 29 Junio 1971

    As to the first ground, I do not think the reasonable man—who can also be described as an ordinary sensible man—should be envisaged as reading this article carefully. The relevant impression is that which would be conveyed to an ordinary sensible man (in this case having knowledge of the relevant circumstances) reading the article casually and not expecting a high degree of accuracy.

  • Norwich Pharmacal Company v Commissioners of Customs and Excise
    • House of Lords
    • 26 Junio 1973

    They seem to me to point to a very reasonable principle that if through no fault of his own a person gets mixed up in the tortious acts of others so as to facilitate their wrong-doing he may incur no personal liability but he comes under a duty to assist the person who has been wronged by giving him full information and disclosing the identity of the wrongdoers.

  • Riddick v Thames Board Mills Ltd
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 11 Marzo 1977

    Compulsion is an invasion of a private right to keep one's documents to oneself. The public interest in privacy and confidence demands that this compulsion should not be pressed further than the course of justice requires. In order to encourage openness and fairness, the public interest requires that documents disclosed on discovery are not to be made use of except for the purposes of the action in which they are disclosed.

  • Bank Mellat (Appellant (Plaintiff) v Mohammad Ebrahim Nikpour (Respondent
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 Abril 1982

    When an ex parte application is made for a Mareva injunction, it is of the first importance that the plaintiff should make full and frank disclosure of all material facts. He ought to state the nature of the case and his cause of action. Equally, in fairness to the defendant, the plaintiff ought to disclose, so far as he is able, any defence which the defendant has indicated in correspondence or elsewhere.

  • R v Howell (Errol) (pet dis)
    • House of Lords
    • 11 Febrero 1982

    Discovery constitutes a very serious invasion of the privacy and confidentiality of a litigant's affairs. It forms part of English legal procedure because the public interest in securing that justice is done between parties is considered to outweigh the private and public interest in the maintenance of confidentiality.
