MST proposal for fast track defamation procedure

Based on the proposals in the Jackson Review and for libel reform, it appears highly unlikely that libel trials in the High Court will ever be inexpensive.

For this reason, and for the benefit of both publishers and people who believe they have been misrepresented, the MST has drafted a proposal for a fast track procedure for defamation.

We will be using this draft as a basis for discussion over the course of the next year.
