Cherie Booth v The Mail on Sunday. Booth certainly knows which friendly judge to phone at 2am, managing to get an early morning injunction to stop the Mail on Sunday presses and force the paper to try and retrieve 1.5 million copies that had already been printed. The injunction bans the Mail on Sunday from publishing tales of life with the Blairs from their ex-nanny Ros Mark. Booth is claiming damages of £15,000 from the paper which is retaliating with its own claim for damages. The Mail on Sunday argues that the information was already in the public domain and was not confidential nor covered by the law of confidentiality. Furthermore, the paper claims that Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's spokesman, was aware that the Mail on Sunday intended to write a detailed article and did not object.
