Statement on libel claim against Carole Cadwalladr

1 min

We represent Carole Cadwalladr in a libel claim brought against her by Arron Banks.  

In December last year, the Judge made a decision about the single meaning of her statement about Arron Banks.  In light of that judgment, Banks withdrew a significant part of his claim.  Following clarification of the judgment in relation to the one remaining allegation, Carole has now withdrawn her truth defence, but, contrary to some reporting, has not made any admissions and stands by her public interest reporting.  

She will continue to defend the claim and we anticipate that the case will be heard at trial next year.
