Merlin Entertainments lpc and others v Cave

Tort – Harassment. The claimants, who were involved in the running of amusement parks, sought an interim injunction restraining the defendant from sending mass emails and setting up websites in which he campaigned on the issue of safety in theme parks, and criticised the claimants and other individuals. The Queen's Bench Division, in dismissing the application, held that there had been no course of conduct which amounted to harassment. Accordingly, the claimants had not established that there was a serious question to be tried, still less that they were more likely than not to succeed.
