News Of The World

News Of The World
Max Mosley, former head of Formula 1, has won a UK legal action against the News Of The World newspaper. Mosley sued the newspaper for breach of privacy after it printed clandestine photographs of him at a sex party. The newspaper also uploaded a short video of the party on its website.

The story was published on 30th March, with a front-page banner headline referring to Mosley's "SICK NAZI ORGY". Mosley accepted that he had participated in an orgy, but insisted that it was a private matter and that it had no Nazi overtones. The High Court judge agreed with him, and awarded him £60,000 in damages, though no injunction was issued.
