Privacy and Media Law expert comments on the lessons learnt from the Wagatha Christie verdict

Head of Dispute Resolution and Privacy and Media Law expert Dominic Crossley comments on the ‘Wagatha Christie’ libel battle between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney has featured in the Evening Standard.

Earlier this year, Rebekah Vardy lost the High Court libel battle she brought against Coleen Rooney over a 2019 viral social media scandal that captivated the nation, declaring Vardy was secretly leaking stories to the media about a fellow footballer’s teammates and their wives. Dominic explains, “Libel litigation involves a gruelling and intense focus on the evidence, and Ms Vardy’s pursuit of this case now stands as a stark reminder of the perils faced by a dogmatic claimant.” For Dispute Resolution or Privacy and Media Law enquiries, contact Dominic Crossley via email or on 020 7465 4306
