Serafin v Malkiewicz  EWCA Civ 852.
This case concerns a publication in Polish about Mr Jan Serafin, who had previously been declared bankrupt. The Defendants won at trial before Mr Justice Jay, but the Claimant subsequently successfully appealed on the basis that the public interest defence should not have been available and that how the High Court Judge ran the trial was unfair. Permission has been granted to appeal to the Supreme Court and a hearing has been listed in March 2020. Dr Anton van Dellen represented the Defendants in the Court of Appeal and will again represent them in the Supreme Court.
