Comment in The New York Times on Libel Law related to “Endgame”
Taylor Hampton Solicitors’ Daniel Taylor was quoted in The New York Times on November 30th in relation to the Omid Scobie publication “Endgame” where the author makes a number of revelations about the royal family.
According to the article:
“Some speculated that the libel laws had handcuffed Mr. Scobie as tightly as the press. Daniel Taylor, a media lawyer at the London firm Taylor Hampton, said the author and his publisher were at risk of a defamation suit if the people who made the comments “were deemed to be racist in posing the question” about the child’s skin color.
“If the names were included in the book by mistake without sufficient evidence to back up who made the allegation or the circumstances in which it was made,” Mr. Taylor added, “that may have led to a decision to pulp the copies.”
