Slander case settled on the doors of Court

01 November 2010

We acted on behalf of a former employee of the Automobile Association (AA), in a slander claim against one of her colleagues. Gordon Cartwright had written to the GMB Union and to the AA accusing our client of sending him a hardcore pornographic email which he opened in front of his 3-year old child. The case proceeded all the way to trial, but we were able to settle the case on the doors of Court, with a statement in open court and a contribution to her legal costs.
