Practice – Pre-trial or post-judgment relief. The Queen's Bench Division, having considered s 12 of the Human Rights Act 1998 and having had regard to the competing rights in arts 8 and 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, granted an application by the claimants, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews, to continue an interim injunction to restrain publication of photographs taken from her iCloud account, which had been hacked. The terms of the injunction were broadened to include, not just photographs, but any other information which might have derived from the iCloud account.
