Sienna Miller wins naked photo lawsuit against photogJanuary 19th, 2008 - 4:59 pm ICT by admin
Washington , Jan 19 (ANI): Sienna Miller has won a high court privacy order over nude photos taken while she was on the set of her new film.
Photographer Warren Richardson took photos of the actress with a long lens on the closed set of Hippie Hippie Shake without her consent.
At a hearing at London ’s High Court, Justice Eady granted a permanent injunction against Richardson after Miller claimed that the naked pictures were taken without her permission.
The candid pictures were later sold by Richardson s employer, Xposure Photo Agency, to British tabloids The Sun and the News of the World, which published them in October, reports Contactmusic.
However, a judge ruled in her favour and Miller was given 75,000 dollars in damages in an invasion of privacy lawsuit filed against the photo agency and the publications’ parent company, News Group Newspapers.
The judge ruled that it was “entirely appropriate” to make the orders sought against the photographer.
He was also ordered to pay the costs of the hearing within four months. Any damages will be settled at a later date.
Millers lawyer David Sherborne represented her in court, as she is currently filming abroad. (ANI)
