McVicar challenges English libel law in the European Court of Human Rights

May 2001

We are representing the journalist, John McVicar in his claim before the European Court of Human Rights, arising from a defamation action brought against him by Linford Christie. Mr McVicar claims that the defamation trial was unfair and that his right to free expression has been compromised. The European Court has declared the complaint admissible and it will now proceed to a full hearing in Strasbourg.
