Hello! Claims Victory in Zeta Jones Photos Battle

By Stephen Howard, PA

Hello! magazine today claimed victory in its epic court battle over the wedding pictures of Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.

The Court of Appeal allowed its challenge to a High Court order that it should pay more than £1 million damages and another £1 million in legal costs to rival magazine OK!, which had an exclusive contract with the Hollywood couple to cover their New York wedding.

Hello!’s appeal against the ruling in favour of the Hollywood couple over privacy and commercial confidence was dismissed.

But the appeal judges also threw out the couple’s claim for more damages and OK!’s cross appeal based on unlawful interference with business.
