Anonymity order won in LCFC dispute

Claimant's identity will be kept secret in case involving Leicester City FC



A claimant has won a UK High Court battle with Leicester City FC to keep their identity secret during a legal case.

The claimant, identified as ‘OPQ’, has won an anonymity order, with the High Court ruling that “the case is likely to attract publicity and that revealing the identity of the claimant is likely unfairly to damage the interests of the claimant and that, accordingly, publication of details revealing the claimant’s identity ought to be prohibited”.


The order stated that “there be substituted for all purposes of this case, in place of references to the claimant, and whether orally or in writing, references to the letter ‘OPQ’”.


The report stated that “reporting restrictions apply as to the disclosing of any information that may lead to the subsequent identification of the parties”.
