Anyone following the misconceived libel case brought by the now discredited British Chiropractic Association against Simon Singh, or interested in the debate about libel reform more generally, should read an excellent blogpost by Lucifee, a fellow lawyer and blogger, here.
Her blogpost is entitled (provocatively) "In defence of Mr Justice Eady".
You may thereby be surprised to read that I agree with her; but for the reasons she sets out, you will see why I have never criticise that particular judge directly. Indeed, like Lucifee, I also strongly support his rulings on privacy law.
For me, the fault has always been with libel law itself, and not with any single judge.
