Pannu v Carter v Medway Council [2017] EWHC 3270 (QB)

In a judgment handed down today, Sir David Eady, sitting as a High Court Judge, dismissed the defamation claim brought by a taxi driver, Mandeep Pannu, against a taxi operator, Tracy Carter, following a 3 day trial in November. Kate Wilson was instructed for the defendant shortly before the trial commenced and represented her at trial. The judge held that the email sued upon did not convey a defamatory meaning about the claimant and that the claimant had failed to show that a conversation also complained of was actionable in slander, further it was published on an occasion of qualified privilege and the defendant was not malicious.

Kate Wilson, instructed by Stephen & Son, represented the Defendant at trial.

The judgment is available here.
