A British court ruled Monday that The Mail does not have to issue a front-page apology to Meghan Markle after she won a privacy lawsuit until it challenges to court’s findings. The judge wrote: “The defendants are entitled to ask the Court of Appeal to look at their grounds and decide if those points justify the grant of permission to appeal. To refuse a stay in the meantime would negate that entitlement.”
The Duchess of Sussex sued the Associated Newspapers for invasion of privacy and copyright infringement over five articles reproducing large portions of a private letter she wrote to her estranged father, Thomas, after her wedding to Prince Harry.
Judge Mark Warby ruled in her favor last month, and ordered the paper to publish a front-page statement on her victory, and run it online for a week.
