    Law firm wins £25k over unsubstantiated defamatory claims on review website
    A disgruntled client who posted unsubstantiated defamatory claims about a law firm on a review website has been ordered to pay £25,000 in damages. Giving summary judgment in Summerfield Browne Ltd v Waymouth, Master David Cook said that a ‘substantial’ number of clients were put off after Philip James Waymouth wrote on the Trustpilot website that his experience had been ‘A total waste of money another scam solicitor’ [sic]. The national firm brought proceedings for libel and sought general damages limited to £25,000 and special damages of £300 per day to cover the drop-off in work. The firm also asked for an order to remove the defamatory words from Trustpilot.

  • Value of homemaker’s work same as hubby’s at office: SC

    INDIA
    The Supreme Court on Tuesday said the value of a woman’s work at home was no less than that of her office-going husband and enhanced the compensation to relatives of a couple who died when a car hit their scooter in April 2014 in Delhi. A bench of Justices N V Ramana and Surya Kant enhanced the compensation by Rs 11.20 lakh to Rs 33.20 lakh to be paid to the father of the deceased man by the insurance company with 9% annual interest from May 2014. Justice Ramana expanded the idea first espoused by the SC in Lata Wadhwa case in 2001 when it had dealt with the issue of compensation for victims of a fire during a function and had ruled that it should be granted to housewives on the basis of services rendered by them in the house.
