Clift v Slough BC [2010] EWCA Civ 1484

An email from a local authority stating that Clift was on its violent persons register was published too widely: (1) the disproportionate publication was an unjustified breach of Article 8; (2) the Article 8 breach prevented the local authority from using the qualified privilege defence to defamation.

Citations

Note that the correct citation is [2010] EWCA Civ 1484B and not [2010] EWCA Civ 1171B (a version of the judgment had been published with that NCN, which was allocated to another case).
