Woodward v Grice

Libel and slander – Damages. The Queen's Bench Division awarded damages in a libel case in the sum of £18,000. The libel was aggravated by the defendant's: (i) persistence in maintaining his allegation, and refusing to back down and retract until he was shown positive evidence that he had been wrong; and (ii) pursuit by several damaging slurs against the claimant's probity.
