 Ananova: 
Zeta Jones gets 14,600 for wedding photos 'distress'

Snatched pictures of the wedding of Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas have cost celebrity magazine Hello! more than 1 million.

In one of the final acts of the long-running court case, High Court judge Mr Justice Lindsay was giving judgment on the Hollywood couple's claim for damages.

He gave them a total of 14,600 and awarded Hello!'s rival OK! 1,033,156 for commercial damage to its exclusive coverage of the New York wedding in November 2000.

Lawyers acting for the couple hailed the award as "historic" and said they would be donating their damages to The Family Learning Centre.

Hello! said it was "very happy" that the total award to the Douglases was 14,600 - they had been seeking 600,000.

But Hello! said it was disappointed by the 1 million-plus award to OK! and it would appeal against this part of the judgment.
