Sun wins High Court privacy battle with Ryan Giggs

A damages claim by Manchester United and Wales footballer Ryan Giggs against the Sun newspaper was thrown out by a High Court judge today.

Giggs claimed that The Sun “misused” private information and argued that he was entitled to claim damages for distress and breach of a right to privacy enshrined in human rights legislation.

But The Sun argued that Giggs’s claim – made after the newspaper published an article about a relationship with reality television star Imogen Thomas – is “dead in the water” and should be stopped.

Mr Justice Tugendhat heard arguments at a High Court hearing in London last month and delivered his ruling today.
