U.S. businessman wins libel claim
We represented J Shelby Bryan in libel claims against the Evening Standard and the Daily Telegraph. The newspapers repeated defamatory allegations made in Talk, a New York based magazine. Mr Bryan, who has been propelled into the media spotlight as a result of his relationship with Anna Wintour, accepted an out-of-court settlement in which the newspapers withdrew the allegations and apologised. They also made generous donations to charities of Mr Bryan’s choice.
