The Supreme Court has announced that it has received an application from PJS for permission to appeal to the Court in a case relating to an interim injunction prohibiting the publication of the appellant’s extramarital relations.

On Monday the Court of Appeal held that the injunction should be set aside on the basis that knowledge of the relevant matters is now so widespread that confidentiality has probably been lost because of overseas and online publication identifying the couple involved.

The Court is considering the application. A decision whether to grant, or refuse, permission is expected to be made by the end of the day.
