Goliath can't appeal against little David decision

According to the House of Lords' Minutes of Proceedings this week, the highest appellate court in the United Kingdom has refused Big Pictures (UK) Limited leave to appeal against the Court of Appeal's decision in its controversial dispute with little David Murray, better known as the son of Harry Potter author J K Rowling. Earlier this year the Court of Appeal (as noted by the IPKat here in "Now you can buy milk without being shot", allowing David's appeal) refused to strike out an action brought on behalf of the child, considering that it was at least arguable that David had a reasonable expectation of privacy and that the balance between Articles 8 and 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights should be struck in his favour. The trial on the merits of his claim has yet to take place.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
