Bindel v PinkNews Media Group Ltd and another [2021] EWHC 1868 (QB)

TMT analysis:

The High Court refused the defendants’ application for a trial of preliminary issues (TPI) on the basis that the issues for determination were too ambitious and would require disclosure, witness evidence and cross-examination. Trials of preliminary issues should be limited in scope and justify the costs, delay and resources in line with the overriding objective.
