Re: Axon v Ministry of Defence [2016] EWHC 787 (QB)

The claimant naval officer, who had been the commanding officer of a ship, failed in an action for misuse of private information and breach of confidence, where information about investigations into allegations of bullying made against him, which led to his reassignment, were published in the media.

Hugh Tomlinson QC, Sara Mansoori and Anthony White QC were involved in this case.
