High Court Strikes out Libel Claim as “totally without merit”

In a victory for free speech (and common sense) yesterday the High Court struck out a claim of libel against me by Kamran Malik (see judgment and order below). Mr Malik objected to me republishing here a government press release that described his imprisonment for immigration advice offenses. He will no doubt appeal.

If anyone wants to link or comment on this case can they please be careful and also be fully aware of the probable consequences. I have closed off my own comment thread.

Many thanks to my ace legal team - Barrister Jonathan Price, Solicitor Advocates Robert Dougans and Serena Cooke.

(UPDATE: there is a typo in the order that is being sorted)
