In the top post on Defamation trials, Summary Determinations and Assessments: 2005-2009, Benjamin Pell forgot to mention my several defamation hearings that were listed on the court’s website. I was the Claimant and my Defendants were Associated Newspapers, Bruno Schroder, Suzanne Maltzahn and James Harcus.

One of the judgments was even published on The Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee’s website for their Press Standards Inquiry, along with a Memorandum from me summarising the history of the litigation.

Benjamin, how could you have overlooked these?
