*Heythrop Zoological Gardens Ltd and another v Captive Animals Protection Society

Injunction – Interlocutory. The Chancery Division dismissed an application by the claimant zoo and its director for an interim injunction to restrain the defendant animal's campaigning charity from using photographs or videos taken of animals at the zoo. Overall, balancing all factors, there was no sufficient likelihood that the claimant would obtain a final injunction at trial based on any of the causes of action to justify the interference with journalistic freedom of speech which an interim injunction would involve.
