Max Mosley wins privacy case
LONDON (Reuters) - Motor racing chief Max Mosley won a landmark case in Britain's high court on Thursday when a judge ruled his privacy was violated by a tabloid newspaper that exposed his part in sado-masochistic orgies.
Mosley, president of Formula One's governing body and son of 1930s Fascist leader Oswald Mosley, did not deny taking part in the German-themed sex sessions with prostitutes, but said his privacy was violated by the reporting on it.
Justice David Eady sided with the arguments put forward by Mosley's legal team, saying The News of the World Sunday was not justified in publishing the story despite Mosley's international public profile.
The judge awarded Mosley 60,000 pounds in damages.
