Anonymity order won in Norwich City case

UK's High Court says case "likely to attract publicity" and could damage client unfairly



An unidentified claimant has won a UK High Court battle with Norwich City FC and Peterborough United FC to keep their identity secret during a legal case.


The claimant, identified as ‘MXM’, 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”.


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


It added that the claimant “has permission to issue the claim form giving the address of his solicitors in place of his residential address”.
