*AVB v TDD

Injunction – Confidential information. The claimant solicitor brought an action for misuse of private and confidential information and harassment, and for damages against the defendant sex worker. She counterclaimed for damages for harassment against him, and an injunction to restrain him from further harassing her or attending at her home, or disclosing information about her sex work. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant was entitled to an order restraining the defendant from further disclosing any of the confidential or private information already disclosed by her which relates to his wife and his children, however the claim for harassment by the claimant failed. The claimant was found to have embarked on a course of conduct that constituted harassment but in all the circumstances, the defendant was not entitled to damages.
