On that Guardian injunction

Is it the question Guido points to? Or is it something to do with this?

though the Eye learns that one MP hopes to break the conspiracy of silence, under parliamentary privilege, when the Commons reassembles later this month.

Someone not so much asking about a specific case, but someone asking about the entire system of these injunctions?

  1. Look at the order book here. Look at questions 60-63 from Paul Farrelly MP:

    60
    N Paul Farrelly (Newcastle-under-Lyme): To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the Court of Appeal judgment in May 2009 in the case of Michael Napier and Irwin Mitchell v Pressdram Limited in respect of press freedom to report proceedings in court.
    (292409)
    61
    N Paul Farrelly (Newcastle-under-Lyme): To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of legislation to protect (a) whistleblowers and (b) press freedom following the injunctions obtained in the High Court by (i) Barclays and Freshfields solicitors on 19 March 2009 on the publication of internal Barclays reports documenting alleged tax avoidance schemes and (ii) Trafigura and Carter-Ruck solicitors on 11 September 2009 on the publication of the Minton report on the alleged dumping of toxic waste in the Ivory Coast, commissioned by Trafigura.
    (293006)
    62
    N Paul Farrelly (Newcastle-under-Lyme): To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will (a) collect and (b) publish statistics on the number of non-reportable injunctions issued by the High Court in each of the last five years.

  2. This will get the wind up Napier and Irwin Mitchell… uncovering more gremlins i wonder???

    60 Paul Farrelly (Newcastle-under-Lyme): To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the Court of Appeal judgment in May 2009 in the case of Michael Napier and Irwin Mitchell v Pressdram Limited in respect of press freedom to report proceedings in court.”

    Order Book Part 2

    Carter Ruck lost this important case for Michael Napier and his precious legal firm in a huge way – here is the Bailli link:

    Napier & Anor v Pressdram Ltd [2009] EWCA Civ 443 (19 May 2009)

    it just shows how people and dishonest firms above the law think they can get way with anything they like…. just like Napier being given a gong in 2005 for his services to the legal profession (but forgot to tell anyone that he was being officially reprimanded for a so called “minor offense”)….now how does that work and what does jack straw have to say about that???
