Application by the Claimant to strike out the defence or, alternatively, for summary judgment to be entered in the Claimant’s favour and for a permanent injunction.
Held: Summary judgment given. It was not necessary to resolve all the factual issues before concluding with ‘no hesitation’ that the claimant’s privacy rights would ‘far outweigh’ the free speech rights relied on by the defendant.
