Barron MP and others v Collins MEP

Libel and slander – Damages. The Queen's Bench Division ruled that although a defendant had done nothing to rectify the harm done to the claimants, following their acceptance of the defendant's offer of amends in defamation actions, the benefits that the claimants had gained from the offer of amends had not been wholly erased. Consequently, applying a 10% discount to the compensatory award, each claimant would be awarded a total sum of £54,000.
