||Mark Warby QC (instructed by Henri Brandman & Co) for the claimant.
||Edward Bartley Jones QC (instructed by Jackson & Canter) for the defendant.
||4 December 2006
Confidential information - Injunction against disclosure of information - Interim injunction - Breach of confidence - Claimant conducting adulterous relationship with defendant's wife - Defendant wishing to reveal information about affair to world at large - Whether appropriate to grant interim injunctive relief restraining defendant from revealing information.
There could be no rule of generality that an adulterer could never obtain an injunction to restrain the publication of matters relating to his adulterous relationship; even an adulterous relationship might attract, at least in certain respects, a legitimate expectation of privacy. In the circumstances of the instant case, the claimant was entitled to an interim injunction restraining the defendant from communicating, directly or indirectly, with the media or on the internet in relation to the subject of the claimant's former adulterous relationship with the defendant's wife.
