[1993] 1 All ER 897

Case summary last updated at 17/01/2020 20:31 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Joyce v Sengupta

P was falsely accused by D in an article of stealing from the royal family. She brought a claim in malicious falsehood (as she couldn’t afford a claim in libel- trials are longer) even though the damages are smaller than in libel. The CA held that she could bring a claim in malicious falsehood as an alternative to defamation.
