Sienna Miller wins further privacy ruling

As Mediabeak reported in December. Sienna Miller won a privacy payout from The Sun and News of the World which had featured illicit photographs taken from the set of the movie 'Hippie Hippie Shake'.

As Mediabeak pointed out last month. Miller was not going to walk away from the legal action until she had also silenced the photographer who had sold the offending pictures to the press. The picture agency, Xposure and publishers News Group Newspapers have already been hit with a £37,500 + legal costs payout but this week it was photographer Warren Richardson's turn to face the music and payout for this privacy invasion. High Court Judge Mr Justice Eady granted an injunction preventing further disseminating the offending pictures and ordered that sneaky snapper Richardson would have to pay the costs of the litigation as well as damages to be assessed at a later date - Richardson can only hope that his fee from 'Xposure' was worth it.
