Associated Newspapers, publisher of the Mail on Sunday , is facing a
battle for damages after two people complained a story about them
invaded their privacy.
The pair have been granted anonymity to
bring a claim for damages, aggravated damages, and exemplary damages
for alleged breach of confidence and invasion of privacy.
The case centres around a story and photograph about the pair which was published in the Mail on Sunday and on its website.
two are also seeking compensation under the Data Protection Act 1988
and an injunction forbidding any repetition of the story and photograph.
are also asking for an order forcing the paper to hand over all copies
of the photo, and a court order compelling destruction of the photo.
Court papers give no clue as to the identity of the two suing, nor when the story about which they are suing was published.
