Max Mosley v. News Groups Newspapers Limited

Her Majesty’s High Court of Justice in England
[1008] EWHC 1777 (QB) (2008)


Max Mosley (plaintiff) was the president of the organization that sanctioned Formula 1 racing. News Group Newspapers Limited (News Group) (defendant) was the publisher of the newspaper News of the World. News of the World ran an article about Mosley. The article’s headline stated, “F1 BOSS HAS SICK NAZI ORGY WITH 5 HOOKERS.” The article went on to describe an event that was attended by Mosley. The newspaper’s website included video footage of the event. A follow-up article included a purported interview with a woman who attended the event. Mosley sued News Group, arguing breach of confidence and unauthorized disclosure of personal information. Mosley’s claim was brought under the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
