Law Lords scrutinise libel case

A libel action struck out by the High Court in 1992 for want of prosecution is to come under the scrutiny of the Law Lords. Although the Court of Appeal backed the High Court ruling the Law Lords have given leave for Felix Fareed Ismail Grovit to question whether the case should have been struck out. The libel action centres on allegations about Grovit which were contained in a reference for one of the defendants in the action.
