Week 8: Media Law
One of the media law case in 2015 has to do with one of the singer of One Direction’s Niall Horan. Express Newspaper wrote an article which appeared in the Daily star in July implied that by hanging around with Justin Beiber and Simpson that Niall Horan was using drug. Of course Niall Horan sued the newspaper for defaming him while the newspaper said that the article did not implied the Horan was using drug. Justin Dingemans at London’s High Court decide that the article did defamed Horan as their was a lot of reference to Breaking Bad style drugs pipe and that Horan was “staring blankly” which implied he was using hard drug. In the end Horan won that the case over Express Newspaper for libel against him.
A short but sensational celebrity case that had to do with media law on libel which was interesting.
