Claimant defames police officer


Re: Mitchell v News Group Newspapers Ltd [2014] EWHC 4014 (QB)

In this defamation action, the court concluded that, on the balance of probabilities, the claimant had spoken insulting words to a police officer as alleged, or something so close to them as to amount to the same thing, including the word “pleb”.

Gavin Millar QC was involved in this case.
