Axon v MOD v News Group Newspapers Ltd [2016] EWHC 787 (QB)
11 April 2016 - Ex-Royal Navy Commanding Officer loses privacy claim against the MoD.

The MOD had claimed an indemnity from News Group for the publication in the Sun and that claim was also therefore dismissed. Catrin Evans QC acted for News Group (instructed by Wiggin LLP)
