Huhne girl drops pri­vacy bat­tle

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE part­ner of dis­graced former Lib­eral Demo­crat MP Chris Huhne, has dropped her bid to ap­peal in her pri­vacy bat­tle against As­so­ci­ated News­pa­pers over a se­ries of sto­ries which ap­peared in the Daily Mail.

Ca­rina Trim­ing­ham’s ap­peal was listed to be heard on March 12-13.

But a spokes­woman at the Of­fice for Ju­di­cial Com­mu­ni­ca­tions con­firmed that the ap­peal was with­drawn on Thurs­day last week.

That was just 10 days af­ter Huhne, who at­tended South­wark Crown Court with Ms Trim­ing­ham, had ad­mit­ted a charge of per­vert­ing the course of jus­tice by get­ting his former wife to take speed­ing points on his be­half, and shortly af­ter­wards an­nounced that he was re­sign­ing as MP for Eastleigh.

Dis­tress

It is re­ported that Ms Trim­ing­ham made it clear that she had pur­sued this mat­ter as far as she pos­si­bly could, but was not able to con­vince the Daily Mail to apol­o­gise for the hurt and dis­tress they had caused her.
