Supermodel’s summary decision overturned by Court of Appeal

November 2002

Vanessa Frisbee was Naomi Campbell’s agent until the model prematurely ended her contract. Frisbee then disclosed information to the papers, which Campbell claimed breached a confidentiality agreement. We defended Frisbee on the basis either that her duty of confidence was discharged by the claimant’s wrongful repudiation of the contract, or there was a public interest in the story. The case was summarily dismissed in the lower court, however the defendant’s appeal was allowed.
