Corbiere Ltd and others v Xu (Secretary of State for the Home Department intervening)

Confidential information – Misuse of private information. The claimant companies applied successfully for an order compelling the defendant (X) to disclose the location of information that he had wrongly accessed and copied from them. However, the Chancery Division dismissed the claimants' application for an order that X be restrained from leaving the jurisdiction and that he surrender his passport until he had complied with those orders, since the harm to X would not be justified.
