Sally Morgan is overjoyed to have won her libel action against the Daily Mail and to have restored her reputation and professional integrity. After an 18 month investigation into the work that Sally does, the newspaper was forced to make a full apology to Sally and pay her £125,000 in damages; one of the most substantial libel payments in recent history. Sally’s legal team, led by Graham Atkins of Atkins Thomson, and David Sherborne of counsel, describe the victory as an extremely significant result.
The case was concluded at a hearing in the High Court in London on June 20 during which the newspaper withdrew its allegation that Sally cheated her audience at a show in September 2011. Representatives for Associated Newspapers Limited admitted the accusation was untrue and apologised unreservedly to Sally for publishing it. The newspaper also agreed to pay Sally’s legal costs.
Sally is now looking forward to getting on with her life and doing what she does best – displaying her amazing talents to sell-out audiences.
