Taveta Investments Ltd v Financial Reporting Council and others

Injunction – Interim. Although the defendant Financial Reporting Council's publication of a settlement agreement with the interested parties for their admitted misconduct in multiple areas of an audit and particulars did make criticisms of the claimant's personnel that were capable of being defamatory, publication and the likelihood of harm was not exceptional. Accordingly, the Administrative Court refused the claimant an interim order restraining publication of the alleged criticism of the claimant's personnel until its claim for judicial review had been determined.
