  • Looks like the judge was over ruled in the Cruddas libel case. That makes quite a few now - the most notable being Waterson V Lloyd. Eady J before him was overturned alot in his last few years and now we are seeing a repeat. If Sally Bercow had appealed on the grounds I suggested I feel she would have won. The judge seems to be taking the wrong approach in law and one that defies logic and common sense. We need to go back to hearings which consider all the relevant issues and not meaning hearings which result in distorted, ill considered and disproportionate outcomes. The judiciary after finding its way after numerous libel farces of the past now seem to be descending back to the dark ages of libel. Well done Appeal Court anyway.
