Magnitsky libel decision is common sense, says Eversheds
Andy Moody, partner and litigation expert at Eversheds, has responded after the English Court threw out a libel suit brought against British investment fund manager Bill Browder by a Russian former police officer.
He said: ‘The English Court is increasingly sceptical about claims of libel involving Russia and the judgment that the claim was an abuse of process seems a common-sense legal decision, which could well dissuade similar action from being brought here in the UK in future.’
