Theedom v Nourish Training Ltd t/a CSP and Sewell [2016] EWHC 1364 (QB)

15th June 2016 - Following trial, the Defendants in this libel action succeeded in their defence of Truth, s.2 of the Defamation Act 2013. Mr Justice Warby handed down judgment today. The Claimant had sued for libel in respect of emails sent by his former employer to various clients and prospective clients. At a preliminary issue trial, HHJ Moloney QC had determined the meaning of the emails ([2015] EWHC 3769 (QB); [2016] E.M.L.R. 10). Warby J found, following trial, that those meanings were substantially true, namely that the Defendants had proved, in essence, that the Claimant had supplied commercially important, confidential information about the First Defendant’s business to its rivals, that, as a result, the First Defendant had rightly dismissed the Claimant for gross misconduct and further that his misconduct has been so serious that there were reasonable grounds to suspect that he had committed a criminal offence. Kate Wilson, instructed by Ward Hadaway, acted for the Defendants.
