The defendant was a former employee of the claimant, dismissed for gross misconduct. He harassed and defamed the claimants via the internet and an injunction was granted. The claimant sought to establish that the defendant had continued to publish materials online in contempt. Held: the defendant was responsible for the offending publications. The contempts were indeed serious however sanctions would be considered at a later hearing.
Anthony Hudson was involved in this case.
