Media Diary: Mosley tipped for court victory
Monday 09 May 2011
Tomorrow is judgement day for Max Mosley as he attempts to force the press to notify the subjects of stories prior to publication.
The Court of Human Rights will rule on Mosley v United Kingdom, a case which the former Formula 1 boss brought against the state after being exposed by the News of the World when he visited a brothel for an S&M orgy. Mr Mosley took the newspaper for £60,000 for wrongly claiming the orgy had a Nazi theme. He went to Strasbourg claiming that he had been denied his right to privacy under Article 8 of the Human Rights Convention because the UK did not impose a legal obligation on the newspaper to inform him of the story. Legal observers think he has a high chance of success.
