More on Eady

Categories: McKennitt v. Ash +
Sunday, Dec 5, 2010

Ian Burrell wrote a big profile of M J Eady in yesterday’s Independent, promising to delve into “the mind of Britain’s most controversial judge”. However, the piece doesn’t really bring us anything new. Here is the para on McKennitt v Ash:

The media was also alarmed by an Eady judgment in 2005 which blocked an author, Niema Ash, from revealing secret details about the Canadian folk singer Loreena McKennitt, her close friend. The judge said McKennitt was entitled to a duty of confidence under Article 8 of the Human Rights Act (the right to privacy), which – in Eady’s view – outweighed Ash’s right to freedom of expression under Article 10 of the same legislation. The judge’s finding was upheld by the Court of Appeal, which praised his “careful (and correct) judgment”.
