Lord Neuberger sets out views on injunctions

A report by top judges has recommended the media should be informed in advance about applications for injunctions and so-called super-injunctions.

Lord Neuberger, the most senior civil judge in England and Wales, said that "where secrecy is ordered, it should only be to the extent strictly necessary to achieve the interests of justice".

"We have tried to achieve a procedural system which strikes a fair and proper balance between the principles of open justice and freedom of expression for the public and media and an individual's right to confidentiality and privacy."
