BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

The Scottish golfer and Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie, has successfully won a court injunction against details of his private life being exposed. Montgomerie won the order against a tabloid newspaper in July, but the details have only recently come to light. A settlement between the two parties was reached out of court and there is no evidence that the allegations were true. The order came after reports that Montgomerie’s second marriage was in trouble. The golfer is the latest celebrity to use a gagging order to prevent articles about their private life being published.
