Posh Spices Grazia magazine case set to go on trialNovember 1st, 2008 - 2:04 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 1 (ANI): Victoria Beckham has failed to land an immediate ruling in a lawsuit against a British publication implying that the case is now set to go to trial.
Earlier this year, Posh Spice had launched legal action against Grazia magazine, seeking damages for “hurt feelings and distress”.
The singer has accused publishers Bauer Consumer Media Ltd of invasion of privacy over an article published in April (08) which claimed she was unhappy about her soccer ace husband David’’s social life in Los Angeles, reports Contactmusic.
Victoria applied to the court for an immediate decision on the case; however, at a hearing in London on October 31 Justice Eady ruled it could not be settled without the arguments being presented in full.
Beckham’’s lawyer, Hugh Tomlinson QC, told the court, “This is a publication which is simply designed to entertain the readers of Grazia for its own commercial purposes.
It’’s selling copies on the back of what are claimed to be revelations about Victoria Beckham’’s private life and it is at that point that the law clearly draws a line.”
Bosses at Bauer Consumer Media deny invasion of privacy. (ANI)
