QRS v Beach and another

Tort – Harassment. The claimant partner in, and chairman of, a firm of solicitors applied for an interim injunction, under s 3(1) of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, to obtain removal of the defendants' allegedly harassing material from the internet and to prevent its re-instatement. The Queen's Bench Division did not proceed against the second defendant without notice, but found that the first defendant had been serve and proceeded in his absence. Finding no defence to the claim of harassment and that the claimant was likely to establish that publication should not be allowed, it granted the injunction, but excluded 'future employees of the firm' from its scope.
