No Appeal in English Right of Privacy Case

The House of Lords has refused to hear an appeal in the right of privacy case brought by singer Loreena McKennitt against the writer of an unauthorized biography. Ms. McKennitt won a lower court decision against the author, Niema Ash and Ms. Ash appealled. Ms. Ash has since edited the book to omit the offending passages. Read more in a Globe and Mail article here. Read about the original ruling here. The case is Ash v. McKennitt, [2006] EWCA Civ 1714 (decided 14 December 2006).
