Examples Of Celebrities Who Have Been Involved In Privacy Cases

“Snaps in the Maldives broke the law,” says judge.

On Thursday, 15 May 2008 Hugh Grant,

Liz Hurley and her husband Arun Nayar

on a privacy case in the High Court

against 2 picture agencies: Big Pictures

(UK) Ltd and Eliot Press SARL.

The agencies have been ordered to pay

£58,000 damages after taking snaps of the

Trio at a private resort in the Maldives in

October last year.

The judge agreed that images of Hugh, 47,

Liz, 42, and Arun, 43, were taken covertly.

Earlier this month at the

UCLA Medical Centre in LA

14 workers resigned, retired

or were fired – and nine

physicians were suspended

for peeking at the records of

Britney Spears during a

hospitalization this year.

Farrah Fawcett was involved

in a similar incident.

Anna Ford, the BBC newsreader, appealed

to the Press Complaints Commission, after

she, her partner and her children went on

holiday to a secluded beach resort in

Majorca. During the vacation a

photographer, with a long lens camera, took

a photo of her applying sun cream.

The photo appeared in OK! magazine and

the Daily Mail. However, her complaint was

rejected as the Commission disagreed and

argued that the beach was a public place.

Her appeal to court on Tuesday was also

rejected, as the judge agreed with the

commission even though he was said to

have "clear and genuine sympathy" for Ms

Ford.

Do you think this act was a violation

of Ms Ford’s privacy?
