Abstract

Argues that the opinion of Baroness Hale in the case of Jameel v Wall Street Journal Sprl [2006] UKHL 44 should have prevailed in the case so that corporations have to prove special damage, or the likelihood of it occurring, in order to succeed in a defamation case. It is argued that this would be a small, but important, change in the law which would create fairness between the parties.
