Divorcing couples have been given reassurance that their private financial affairs will remain confidential even when the media attend court, following a recent judgment from the family court.
James Copson, a partner at London firm Withers, said "The media will be allowed to attend financial resolution hearings, but there will be restrictions on what they can report, not least on the information disclosed as a result of a party’s obligation to provide full and frank disclosure under compulsion from the court."
He said the decision was a "useful clarification and good balancing decision" between the right of the media to freedom of expression and the rights of the parties to privacy, and that "it is important that the public see how the system operates and how decisions are made, even if they do not get all the details."
