The court affirmed the decision of the master giving summary judgment for the claimant in her action for breach of an obligation of confidence contained in a contract for services in respect of the defendant's disclosure of information relating to the claimant's personal life. The defendant had no arguable defence that there was a public interest in disclosure of the information to the press.
