Tamiz v UK
12th October 2017 -n an important endorsement of the UK's approach to online intermediary liability and the wider balance to be struck between the rights of claimants and publishers where claims for repetitional damage are brought, the European Court of Human Rights has today dismissed a challenge brought by Payam Tamiz against the United Kingdom government. Mr Tamiz maintained that a decision of the Court of Appeal to dismiss his defamation claim against Google Inc. in 2013 constituted a breach of his rights under Articles 8 and 13 of the ECHR. However, the European Court rejected this argument, holding that the national courts had achieved a fair balance between Mr Tamiz's right to respect for his private life under Article 8 and the important rights of freedom of expression which were enjoyed by both Google Inc. and its end users. David Glen acted on behalf of the United Kingdom Government in the proceedings. Catrin Evans QC acted for Google Inc. who intervened as an interested party (instructed by Pinsent Masons) and also acted for Google Inc. in the domestic proceedings (instructed by RPC LLP).
