Responding to the Master of the Rolls’ report on the use of superinjunctions, Jo Glanville, Editor of Index on Censorship said:
Lord Neuberger’s recommendations will bring much needed clarity to the use of injunctions. There has been a widespread perception that the courts have increasingly undermined open justice and free speech in favour of privacy.
The proposals in this report will go some way towards correcting the imbalance by providing clear guidelines, reaffirming the fundamental principles of open justice and freedom of expression, and offering for the first time a mechanism for monitoring the use of injunctions.
