Various Claimants v News Group Newspapers Ltd (1435): ChD 4 Jun 2020

Application for inspection of disclosed documents, but the real issue in the application is whether a given individual, to whom the inspection relates, is correctly treated as a confidential source of the defendant and whether the documents should nonetheless be made available for inspection. The situation is a slightly unusual one because in this instance the identity of the individual is known. What the defendant seeks to protect is not his identity, but the fact that he was the source of various tips and/or newspaper stories.
