Injunction - Identification - Protection from identification - Court's duty to protect individuals' privacy - Whether injunctions should be granted preventing identification of parties.
In a case concerning fertility treatment which resulted in woman receiving sperm from a man who was not her partner, the court held that it had the duty to protect the individuals' private lives and prevent them becoming the victims of intrusive and distressing publicity in a situation they had done nothing to bring upon themselves. Accordingly, injunctions were granted to prevent any identification or approaching of the individuals, identification of the clinic and the NHS trust area responsible for the clinic.
