Statement in Open Court in Bell Shepard v Associated Newspapers Limited

Mail Online settles privacy claim over photograph of the daughter of Hollywood actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard

A statement in open court has been read in a misuse of private information and data protection claim brought by Kristen Bell on behalf of her daughter Delta Bell Shepard.

Mail Online, part of Associated Newspapers Limited, published a photograph of Delta Bell Shepard last year when she and her parents were on a family walk.

Mail Online accepted that this invaded her privacy, publicly apologised, and agreed to pay her legal costs. Mail Online also undertook to limit the publication of photos of the Claimant or her siblings.

5RB’s Greg Callus and Ben Hamer acted for the Claimant, instructed by Gateley Tweed.
