THE High Court has refused to continue a privacy injunction awarded to Meriden MP Caroline Spelman's son.
Seventeen-year-old Jonathan Spelman has until next Friday (March 2) to appeal the decision and the injunction will stay in place until then.
The injunction was granted against Express Newspapers to prevent the publication of a story in the Daily Star Sunday.
Mr Justice Lindblom, who initially granted the injunction, said the information in the story attracted a reasonable expectation of privacy while he also took into consideration it was the case of a minor.
But at the High Court today (Friday) Mr Justice Tugendhat said it was not necessary or proportionate to continue the injunction.
He added his ruling did not give Express Newspapers or any other publishers a licence to publish the story.
Christina Michalos, counsel for Express Newspapers, argued the case was about freedom of expression.
