Paul Weller didn't win damages from the Mail
Singer Paul Weller's children have been awarded damages after the Mail Online published photographs of them in a café and also out shopping in Los Angeles in 2012.
Paul Weller contested — acting on behalf of his children — that private information had been misused and that the Data Protection Act had been breached.
"Singer Paul Weller wins £10,000 in damages" says various news outlets. He didn't. His children did: para 200 of http://t.co/iU7HQc68ov"
Weller was acting as the 'litigation friend' to his children in this case, but the judgment is clear that the award of damages was not to him. This was a fundamental point on the facts of the case. The legal claim was about the privacy rights of children, and not adults.
