The Supreme Court has announced that it will hand down judgment on Thursday 19 May in PJS v News Group Newspapers concerning whether the publication overseas of the identity of PJS and details of PJS’s sexual encounters had resulted in the protected information no longer being confidential or private, such that the injunction preventing publication in this jurisdiction should be set aside.

It will be handed down in Court 1 from 9.30am. The proposed bench for the hand down consists of Lord Neuberger, Lady Hale and Lord Mance.
